Elutec is an exciting new school for students interested in engineering, design and manufacturing.
It is one of a new breed of school in the UK called a University Technical College (UTC) focused on delivering high quality technical education alongside more traditional academic subjects. Our motto is ‘Engineering. Education. Employment’ and our aim is to inspire young people in East London and Essex to become the next generation of talented engineers and designers through a really positive education experience which equips them with the skills, knowledge and personal qualities they need to have a successful career in industry.
At Elutec the curriculum and learning techniques allow students to combine theory with practical activities: putting learning into practice in our purpose-built, state-of-the-art facilities. Our students benefit from a wide range of extension activities, allowing them exceptional opportunities to pursue many different interests outside the main curriculum.
Elutec hours are more like business hours than other schools and colleges, with the curriculum encouraging a structured and effective use of time. Sixth formers will have timetabled study periods. This progressive, 21st Century approach to technical education has some very traditional values at heart and at Elutec we place huge emphasis on self-discipline, good behaviour, dress code, teamwork and co-operation.
Building the Elutec Community has started. The college opened in September 2014 and there is a schedule to ensure that everything is in place to achieve this hugely ambitious vision. To be part of the journey and be kept informed at every stage, register here>>
