Welcome to AUEA.
I am delighted to introduce Aston University Engineering Academy and Aston University Sixth Form which make up Birmingham’s University Technical College (UTC).
Life in AUEA and Aston University Sixth Form is both exciting and rewarding with possibly the largest range of opportunities and experiences available in any college. Our unique approach ensures the development of young people to be equipped with the right skills and knowledge for a career in engineering and science at all levels. We combine exciting and innovative learning through our partnerships with industry employers and Aston University. Our Ethos is built around high expectations and high aspirations.
Our role with industry continues to grow and expand and will result in our new students having more opportunities to excel and stand out than any other year group prior, especially with our expanding partnership with HS2 and the new National College for High Speed Rail, adjacent to our site.
As we start the year we celebrate our graduates achieving over 100 leading places on degrees and apprenticeships, including into some of the UK’s most prestigious science and engineering courses, including Rolls-Royce, JLR, Royal Navy and The Dyson Institute.
Following our commendation in the 2016 National BTEC awards 'School of the year' and winning 'Student of the Year', we were delighted to be awarded the the 'Most Innovative Contribution to Business' in the Education Awards 2017. This mirrored Ofsted highlighting in 2017 our outstanding employer partnerships in their national review. This focus on employer partnerships reflects our commitment to ensure that each of our learners leave our UTC equipped with not only outstanding academic and technical outcomes, but a rich diversity of professional skills that ensures that they stand out for future training and employment, putting them ahead of the rest.
Whether a potential student (family), staff, or industry employer, I look forward to working closely with you.
