Technical BaccalaureateSkiptonGirls_2572

The Technical Baccalaureate (TechBacc) is a new performance table measure that allows young people aspiring to a technical career, a high-quality alternative to the A Level route. The TechBacc measure recognises the achievement of students taking advanced (level 3) programmes which include a DfE approved Tech Level, Level 3 Maths and extended project qualifications. The certificate and diploma are both counted in the Technical Baccalaureate.

Is this course for me?

With high academic expectations, this new course is designed to provide a clear pathway into degree courses. The course has been designed in consultation with universities, employers and industry specialists to ensure students achieve the right combination of knowledge. If you like science, maths and solving technical problems, this exciting course is for you. It brings engineering to life through making use of visits to talk to real designers, engineers and architects at their places of work and on real sites. 

Where can it take me?

You could consider a career in aerospace, agricultural, biomedical, computer hardware, electronics, industrial, chemical and civil sectors. Students will be encouraged to develop professional relationships with the local engineering businesses and complete a work experience to develop their understanding of the profession. You will have the opportunity to investigate progression routes into postgraduate and apprenticeship courses in engineering.
