Key Stage 5 Overview

As a Key Stage 5 student you will be able to follow a personalised curriculum through five different pathways: Engineering, Information Technology, Vehicle Technology, Environmental and Pre-apprenticeship.

Just like in Key Stage 4, all of these lead to nationally recognised qualifications such as BTECs and industry-standard qualifications – however, instead of GCSEs, you’ll be working towards Level 3 qualifications. We will also support your development of skills and competencies to equip you for the work place. At post-16, you will want to develop and hone in on your set of skills to provide you with the best chance of progression onto the career path of your choice. At UTC we offer the opportunity to do just this. Pre-apprenticeship Pathway – This is aimed towards students who wish to re-take their English and Maths GCSEs. Therefore, this pathway focuses more on subject development, mixed with a good level of practical lessons and work experience.
