Are University Technical Colleges working?

Skills 4

3:10 pm - 3:50 pm

With continued debate surrounding the effectiveness of University Technical Colleges (UTCs) (see Sally DIcketts 4.4.17 in Schools Week http://schoolsweek.co.uk/utcs-are-not-an-educational-experiment-gone-wrong/), Jude Hillary will explore the latest evidence, based on new analysis of National Pupil Database and school performance data. This will include looking at the background and prior attainment of pupils attending UTCs, and the differences between the most and least successful UTCs in the light of government performance measures. This session will be of interest to policymakers and practitioners with an interest in UTCs.
