UTC Leeds students are celebrating a good set of academic and technical exam results.
Students have the opportunity to complete academic as well as technical qualifications in science, technology, maths and engineering subjects backed by employers.
The technical qualification pass rate is 97%. This year, 42 students took technical qualifications, which involve working on employer-led projects and developing team working and problem solving skills.
Two thirds of students who took a technical qualification achieved a distinction* in the single qualification and a quarter of students achieved this in the double awards of mechatronics.
This year, a quarter of students taking maths A Level achieved A* to A grades and 60% achieved A* to C. In further maths, 75% of students achieved grades from A * to B.
Alex Burnham, Principal, UTC Leeds, said: “We are very proud of the hard work and dedication the students have shown, which has resulted in some excellent technical qualifications and A Levels.”
He added: “We prepare our students with the high level skills that employers and university need. The students’ destinations are very strong again this year. I want to say a big ‘thank you’ to our dedicated staff and employers who have supported the students and developed their employability skills.”
Students are going onto a range of higher and degree apprenticeships at employers including Buro Happold Engineering, Sulzer Pumps, Reliance Precision and Siemens as well as onto university. They include the University of Durham, University of Sheffield and the University of Wolverhampton.
