Greater Peterborough University Technical College
Greater Peterborough UTC (GPUTC) is an exciting new University Technical College based in the centre of Peterborough with engineering and the built environment at the heart of all we do. Opened in September 2016, our new school is the choice for the city’s engineers, designers, architects and construction specialists of the future.
Students can join GPUTC in year 10 or year 12 and enjoy learning in our new £12 million state-of -the-art building, using industry leading-facilities and equipment.
Our mission is simple; to provide an outstanding educational experience that will equip our students with the technical skills and practical work experience needed to get a head start in their chosen technical career.
Unique in our educational offering, our school works closely with our industry sponsors which include Anglian Water, Larkfleet Home and Marshall Aerospace to provide students the opportunity to combine academic study (GCSEs and A Levels), vocational training and practical work experience offering a new type of education not found in most traditional schools. ‘Learning by doing’ is central to our method of teaching.
Our employer project approach is innovative and it will ensure that each student is fully prepared with the necessary skills as a springboard for progressing onto higher education, apprenticeships, further training or directly into employment.
