Do you know anyone for whom this might be a fantastic next step in their education? You may have employees, colleagues, friends or relatives with teenage children.  Please let them know about the UTC so that they can decide for themselves. They need to be interested in STEM subject (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).  Students currently in Years 9 and 11 (that’s 13-15 year olds) can apply for places this year.
