OUTLINE OF KS5 CURRICULUM
Elutec (East London UTC) provides an education for students who wish to pursue a career in Science, Maths, Design, Engineering and Technology.
Sixth Form (Key stage 5) courses
There are four STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) pathways in our Sixth Form, each leading to a STEM course at University or an Engineering apprenticeship.
With the exception of students completing Further Maths, all students are expected to complete the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
Alongside their main courses of study, Sixth Form students are encouraged to participate in an hour of PE each week and extra curriculum programmes such as First Give.

UTC leavers are in high demand by employers, as there is a lack of people with high level technical skills, alongside academic skills. In 2018, 62% of Elutec year 13 leavers progressed on to a course at University and 38% took up an offer of an apprenticeship.
