Jaguar Land Rover backs engineering and technology college

29 May 2012 #SMMT News

Jaguar Land Rover has given its backing to Warwick University Technical College (UTC) as part of a government drive to train more than 20,000 14 to 19-year-olds.

Specialising in engineering and digital technology, the College will teach technical skills alongside academic qualifications, with work placements and guest speakers featuring prominently in the focused curriculum.

The Education Minister Lord Hill said the new colleges would provide more choice for school pupils who could opt to join aged 14 or 16. “Right around the country there is a lot of enthusiasm from employers, universities, pupils and parents for high quality rigorous technical education. They provide more choice for children as well as helping provide the kind of highly-skilled technicians our economy needs. The response from employers to UTCs speaks for itself.”
