Uniform and Dress Code
Students who are planning to work with some of the UK’s most prestigious businesses need to dress appropriately. It is the expectation that this business ethos will surround all the work at Elutec Academy. Our aim is to prepare young people to be 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.
