I’ve learnt lots of new things such as being able to work better in a team but have also had access to new machinery that I wouldn’t have got elsewhere.
Sixteen-year-old Agustin is celebrating his success after achieving 9 GCSEs including 2 grade 9s in French & Spanish, a grade 8 in Chemistry and a grade 7 in Mathematics.
He said: “I’m happy overall with my results and looking forward to the future. I eventually want to go to University.”
Agustin says that coming to the UTC was the right choice for him: “The UTC seemed like a good opportunity to study Engineering and to develop my skills. It’s been a great first step towards an Engineering career.”
Agustin particularly enjoyed taking part in a one-week work experience at the AMRC: “I was working with a Rolls Royce trainee apprentice which gave me an insight into the industry. I learnt how to be more mechanical and it gave me valuable workplace experience.”
Commenting on his time at the UTC he said: “I’ve enjoyed pretty much everything about the UTC – the friendships I’ve made, the classes and the teachers have been great and I feel like I’ve become more sophisticated here.”
He added: “I’ve learnt lots of new things such as being able to work better in a team but have also had access to new machinery that I wouldn’t have got elsewhere.”
Agustin is returning to the UTC in September to study A Levels in Maths, Chemistry and Engineering Level 3.
