KS5 Curriculum

Studying in Year 12 and Year 13 at UTC Sheffield is focused and personal. You will join others who are passionate about their subjects and learn with specialist teachers. The emphasis is very much on developing all-round professionalism, so some of your time will be outside the classroom working with employers and engaging in our personal development programme. Our rich network of employer partners will ensure that you leave the UTC well connected with an exceptional awareness of how to succeed in your chosen field.

Flexible routes

We offer a variety of study options dependent on your interests and ambitions. The OCR Technical qualifications for our three specialist pathways in Computing, Health Sciences & Social Care and Sport Science come in different sizes – Extended Certificate, Foundation Diploma, Diploma and Extended Diploma. All Level 3 Cambridge Technicals gain UCAS point providing a strong base for progression to university. You can combine the OCR Technical qualifications with A Levels in different ways to achieve your preferred route – university or apprenticeships – or you can keep your options open for both.
