The Employer Alliance

The Employer Alliance is made of six of the UK’s leading transport and construction companies.

The Employer Alliance will help to provide students with industry-related opportunities, with staff that work in transport and construction engineering who have also been trained as mentors.

Work skills
Students will gain an understanding of the world of work from visits to the Employers Alliance site – see Extended Campus Map.

Students will have the fun and challenge of working in teams on employer-lead projects. Employers will set the projects, support the students in resolving the problems and then help to assess the outcomes.

An apprenticeship gives you hands on experience, a salary and the opportunity to gain qualifications while you work – even a degree (without the student debt). All of this with some high quality, prestigious companies, several of whom are in our Employer Alliance, but you will be in a strong position to apply for the many other opportunities for technical apprenticeships in other organisations once you have finished at the UTC. You can apply for various levels of apprenticeships depending on if you have GCSE’s or A level/Technical Levels and depending on the grades you gain.

Employer partners
Our employer partners have committed, subject to satisfactory completion of their course of study coupled with high attendance and effort, that students can expect to gain job interviews or places on assessment centres for appropriate opportunities. Furthermore, employers will work with the students during their time at the UTC to ensure they are well placed to take advantage of these opportunities.

Relevant curriculum
The curriculum has been designed in partnership with our Employer Alliance and the University of Westminster, to ensure students have a clear line of site to higher education and apprenticeships.
