Bristol Technology and Engineering Academy (or BTE Academy) is a new University Technical College (UTC) that opened in September 2013 in Stoke Gifford, just north of Bristol, England. The University of the West of England and City of Bristol College are the lead academic sponsors of the UTC, and Airbus and GKN are the lead business sponsors of the UTC.[1]

Admissions[edit]

BTE Academy has an initial intake of students aged 14 and 16 (academic years 10 and 12) in 2013, but will expand to accommodate students aged 14 to 19 over the following two years. The primary catchment area of the UTC is Bristol and areas of South Gloucestershire and Bath and North East Somerset, though students from other areas can attend if spare places are available.[2][3]

Curriculum[edit]

BTE Academy specialises in engineering and environmental technologies.[4] Pupils aged 14 to 16 study GCSEs and additional technical core subjects which include a BTEC First Certificate in Engineering and a BTEC First Award in ICT, as well as additional GCSEs in Environmental Science and Business Communication.[5] Sixth form students study A Level Maths and a BTEC National Certificate in Environmental Sustainability, as well as options of other A Levels with BTEC Diplomas or Extended Diplomas in Engineering.[6]
