Post 16 Results Day Success

So this is the second national results day for Elstree UTC.  Congratulations to all our post 16 students who collected their A levels and Level 3 BTEC qualifications today!  I am so pleased... we have a lot of good news to report. Our results have been even better than last year.  A sincere ‘well done’ to our students.

Staff were on hand to support students into the next stage of their education or creative careers.

Our BTEC programmes deserve a special mention.  Production Arts qualifications were of a very high standard with 81% of Media and Production Makeup students achieving the highest possible result of Distinction Star.  In Lighting and Sound Technology, we saw 73% of students achieve Merits and Distinctions.  As a University Technical College it is so pleasing to see us achieving so highly in specialist technical courses like these.

The other vital measure of success for a technical college is whether students are sufficiently equipped to move on to the course or employment opportunity of their choice.  I am delighted to report some stand-out achievements.  We have students who are now set to begin apprenticeships in Music Business Management and Studio Sound Engineering.  We also have students who are going on to internships in the Entertainments Industry such as Working Title Studios and Smile Productions.  We even have a student who is in the process of establishing his own successful start-up company in drone and aerial camera operations.  

We also have a high number of students who are going onto further study including Press and Editorial Photography at Falmouth University, Film Production at the University of Portsmouth, Animation at the University of Creative Arts,  Film and TV Set Design at University of South Wales, Professional Dance in Musical Theatre at ERDANG and Graphic Design at our very own university partner - The University of Hertfordshire.

Once again, I would like to wish all our students sincere congratulations in their sterling efforts to realise these pleasing accomplishments.  Given that these results represent even further improvements on our accomplishments last year, I must also extend my thanks to the teaching team at Elstree UTC who have worked so hard to facilitate these results for their students.

I extend a warm welcome to our leavers to now join our alumni community and keep in touch as they develop their careers.  I hope to welcome them back as future speakers, partners, colleagues and employers.

Enjoy the remaining summer.

Chris Mitchell
Principal EUTC.
