EUTC Post-16 aspires to develop students as versatile, independent learners with the drive for, and understanding of, what it takes to succeed in the future workplace.

In order to achieve this goal we are looking for highly motivated students with a passion for the creative arts industries, in return we offer a wide range of courses and project enriched learning suited for students pursuing these career paths. We encourage all our post-16 students to engage with enrichment through Projects and/or EPQ's. As well as this we expect students to take three subjects across the school. This will provide students with a suitable CV to compete for positions which are highly sought after.

In order to be considered for a place at Elstree UTC we require all students to achieve 5 A*-C grade GCSE or equivalent (including English and Maths). We also require students to achieve a B grade or higher in the area they wish to study.

Below is a map of our Draft blocks for 2018-19.  These may continue to change a little but the structure is a good indication of availability. You can choose 3 subject blocks. If the subject you choose is across two blocks it is worth 1.5-2 A levels (UCAS points and time allocation). Successful applicants receive the opportunity to give use a 'course choice in principle' in January.  Use the more info button in the diagram for some helpful info.

extended project qualification

 

The Extended Project Qualification offers opportunities for students to;

  • Make a significant contribution to the choice and design of an extended project and take responsibility either for an individual task or for a defined task within a group project.

  • Develop and improve their own learning and performance as critical, reflective and independent students

  • Develop and apply decision- making and problem- solving skills

  • Extend their own planning, research and critical thinking, analysis, synthesis, evaluation and presentation skills

  • Use their learning experiences to support their aspirations for higher education and/or career development

  • Transfer skills developed as part of their extended project to other areas of study

The student will develop an idea for a project that they wish to carry out and discuss their ideas with a supervisor.

Students will then;

  • Carry out research to enable them to sufficiently develop project aims and objectives to make a formal project proposal

  • Document their planning and research within the production log

  • Meet with the supervisor at specified meetings to discuss the project process and issues

  • Carry out the project by achieving the aims and objectives they set themselves

  • Prepare and give a presentation about the project product and process (including a question and answer sessions)

  • Evaluate the project process

  • Submit evidence for assessment (production log and project product)
