WHAT WE OFFER
The Leigh UTC is an IB World School
Welcome to Post 16 @TheLeighUTC
At The Leigh UTC we are dedicated to providing students with the professional skills and attributes they need to compete in a future STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) global market. We ensure our Post 16 students are placed on pathways that offer collaborative learning experiences with either an Engineering or Computer Science focus. We pride ourselves in our co-curriculum diet of professional studies and STEM-rich experiences, with universities and business partners, that allow our students to develop international mindsets, professional behaviour and a deep curiosity within and alongside their areas of study.
We are dedicated to ensuring students’ continuous personal development to ensure that every student is successful when they graduate from The Leigh UTC. We provide a wide variety of opportunities for students to realise their potential throughout the Post 16 experience.
As an IB World School, we share a common philosophy: a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes. We have a clear vision to be a distinctive education provider for outstanding STEM learning. Our experienced staff are passionate about creating a centre of excellence for technical qualifications.
International Baccalaureate Career Programme
The International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) prepares students for the world of work as well as developing their personal qualities.
The IBCP is an innovative education pathway that offers a flexible blend of academic and career-related studies. It is a coherent programme that allows schools to create their own distinct offering to reflect the needs, backgrounds, ambitions and learning contexts of their particular students.
The programme is an option for students to undertake in Post 16, and aims to develop applicable, transferable lifelong skills that prepare them for higher education,
higher level apprenticeships or employment.. At the Leigh UTC students can study from a range of diplomas in addition to either Engineering or Computing as their career related study.
The Leigh UTC is a part of the Kent IBCP project and below is a booklet and video with further information
All students are expected to follow the Academic Policy Policy. The policy is linked below.
