UTC life

An environment just like work
At West Midlands Construction UTC (WMCUTC) you’ll get to experience the world of work before you even leave school. Just like in the real workplace, you’ll have a normal working day from 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Thursday with an earlier finish on Fridays.

No homework for WMCUTC students
Our academic year will be 40 weeks long spread over five terms. Although the days are longer than traditional schools, there’ll be no homework at all for learners in Years 10 and 11.

Dress like you mean business
At WMCUTC we’ll be more like a business than a school, which includes what you wear. You will follow a business dress code rather than wearing a school uniform: for your technical studies you’ll dress in clothing that people in the industry wear, and for more formal activities you’ll wear business suits.

Impress your future boss
This all means that employers will be keen to recruit WMCUTC students as they know they’re already ‘work-ready’ and will take less time to settle in to the world of work.
