University Technical College Norfolk is an exciting school specifically set up to develop tomorrow’s engineering and technology specialists. UTCN specialises in advanced engineering and energy skills, but will provide a fantastic educational foundation for any student who has an interest in engineering, science, maths or computing areas.

The UTC ethos and curriculum is heavily influenced by local and national employers who also provide support and work experience for students. This allows our students to receive the best opportunities and discover clear progression routes into higher education, apprenticeships and employment.  With 100% sixth form progression, it is clear that we have been successful at this.

After attending the UTCN many students will go onto further education or higher education at university prior to starting exciting careers. Others will go onto apprenticeships, which combine formal education and training alongside a real job. Whatever pathway you choose, the UTC will provide you with valuable skills and experience to help you seek and secure well-paid and exciting employment in your future science, maths and engineering career.
