We are proud to announce the inception of a new school from the Thomas Telford Multi Academy Trust that opened to Year 7 students for the first time in September 2020, which sees the collaboration of the Outstanding Thomas Telford School with the West Midlands University Technical College, judged by Ofsted to be Good with Outstanding features. The strengths of the two schools have come together to offer students a truly ground-breaking opportunity.
The Thomas Telford University Technical College has been established to provide the young people of Wolverhampton and the surrounding region a unique combination of excellent academic achievement and first-class preparation for their future.
Our specialism, which is built around opportunities to Innovate, Design & Build, will give our students a distinct advantage in seeking professional and technical careers within the Built Environment and related IT industries. The combination of employer mentors, extensive work experience, an employer-led project-based curriculum, specialist facilities and a professional work environment will provide an outstanding education for all our learners. Our students will leave Thomas Telford UTC with the qualifications, skills, experience and professional work ethos that will enable them to reach their highest aspirations. Plus, our partnerships with the Thomas Telford Multi Academy Trust, employers and the University of Wolverhampton will ensure that we are able to support them beyond their graduation and throughout their career.
