Curriculum Offer 2023-2025
At SGS Berkeley Green UTC, we believe in the importance of high-quality, specialist, technical education for young people, and we are passionate about bringing the worlds of employment and education closer together. Our unique curriculum reflects this ethos. The subjects and courses we offer are tailored to maximise the future employability of our students. Equal priority is given to helping them develop as well-rounded, confident and healthy young adults who enjoy learning.
Every student that joins us is asked to select a specialist pathway. Alongside this, and of equal importance, they will study a core curriculum of English, Maths and Science, the building blocks of any future learning, as well as option subjects which broaden their knowledge.
Students also study PSHE, RE and PE which develop understanding of the world around us, how to contribute positively to society and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Finally, Project and Work Experience provide opportunities to work alongside employers, gaining first-hand experience of the skills and attributes necessary for the 21st century workplace.
