(Click the links to visit the relevant Pearson BTEC Nationals pages for more information including the course content)

In addition to this, there are a number of A Level subjects on offer as per the diagram above. Click here to visit the AQA website for more information on each subject.

For those who need to, we offer GCSE re-sit English and Maths classes.

Students who wish to follow an A Level only pathway need to have the appropriate level of qualification before being enrolled on to this programme. These students MUST opt for A Level Computing as one of their options.


As part of their full-time course, KS5 students benefit from our school-wide Masterclass program, the Extended Project Qualification and an A Level Mindset study programme, all designed to develop their independent study skills, motivation and mindfulness all of which are vital for completing their studies at the Watford UTC and beyond.

For three years we have worked closely with Access Aspiration to secure high-profile work placements and apprenticeships for our students. They also deliver careers and CV workshops and mock interviews to ensure each student is full equipped for the next step in their journey.
