At WMUTC we do so much more than just studying for qualifications and offer an extensive enrichment program, including sports: football, badminton, table tennis, basketball, boxing, gym, kick boxing and karate as well as offering chess, Minecraft and film review and other worthwhile activities to engage students.
We have sponsorship from Lovell and Redrow for football and basketball teams, and compete in Wolverhampton school competitions.
As part of our UTC Extra offer we facilitate life drawing, portraiture and drawing with a difference, including printmaking, textiles and sculpture work. Our students have opportunities to work alongside university students with lecturers in workshops at the school of art and design.
In addition, we offer Combined Cadet Force (CCF) and Adventure Training. This is a Ministry of Defence sponsored youth movement that instils British military ethos as well as encouraging physical fitness, moral courage, and self-discipline. We have field-days and overnight exercises (NITEXs) based military camps and training areas subsidised by the MoD. We take advantage of the generous Adventure Training packages offered by the military. Staff have a variety of qualifications such as military qualifications in ranges, exercise management and other qualifications such as adventurous courses in the summer Mountain Leader, Rock Climbing Instructor and first aid.
WMUTC also offers the chance to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and the Duke of York Award.
