University Technical Colleges (UTCs)
UTCs are technical academies for 14- to 19-year-olds. They have university and employer sponsors and combine practical and academic studies. UTCs specialise in subjects that need modern, technical, industry-standard equipment – such as engineering and construction and science – which are taught alongside business skills and the use of ICT.
Free schools are all-ability state-funded schools set up in response to what local people say they want and need in order to improve education for children in their community.
