Year 12 September 2020 Pre Enrolment Creative Booklet

Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

  • Worth an additional 0.5 of an A Level, the EPQ  allows students to embark on a largely self-directed and self-motivated project. Students must choose a topic, plan, research and develop their idea and decide on their finished product.

Work Placement and Employability Skills

  • Weekly work placements with our employer partners – ideal for developing practical skills and gaining a deeper understanding of the creative and technical media sector.  The UTC team can work with you to identify the type of role you would like to do, and to link you up with a suitable company.
  • Live project briefs – our creative and technical teams receive regular commissions from local businesses and other organisations.  These can range from market research and social media campaigns to live streaming of high profile events. These commissions are project- managed and fulfilled by students, with support from experienced UTC staff.
  • Employability skills – a programme of masterclasses delivered by UTC staff and industry partners on key skills such as communication, networking and time management.

Other Non-Qualification Activity 

  • Community and voluntary opportunities – we work with local charities and public sector organisations to plan and deliver projects which benefit the local community.
  • Business support – we can give students a helping hand in planning, setting up and running their own freelance businesses.
