The local UTC is about to take the first set of GCSEs and A levels. What have other UTCs' achievement levels been to date? Are there any statistics?

UTCs get dissed by other MNers, I dunno. Probably a great fit for some.

DfE 2017 GCSE league tables are available - plus you can see history of other years. Generally the standard is very low, & government has virtually stopped opening them. 30/37 UTC's who published results in 2017 were below the Government's floor standards: 4 of those have now closed and another 4 closed earlier. There are now 49 open - the vast majority hugely under-subscribed - with only one due to open in the future.Check out Michael Gove's article in The Times - 10th February 2017. Hope that helps.

User, why are you going around digging up every thread from years back about UTCs just to point out how crap they are?
