A Levels + Technical Qualifications

UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park

At the University Technical College (UTC), you can study a combination of A Level Computer Science combined with an OCR Cambridge Technical in IT Level 3, which is equivalent to A Level. The idea of mixing A Level Computer Science with an industry-based technical qualification is to allow students to develop professional skills as well academic knowledge. Employers are involved in mentoring students, setting challenges, reviewing work and providing careers advice.
