Employer projects are a cornerstone of the RDUTC curriculum and are one of our distinguishing features.

Projects are devised by local employers who will set a genuine and relevant task for groups of students to solve.

Our curriculum combines study for core GCSEs and A Levels with a range of technical and professional qualifications that employers and universities are crying out for.  Our students have the unique opportunity to take the theory they learn and apply it to ‘real’ projects designed and delivered by our employer sponsors.  This both extends their theoretical understanding and, crucially, enables them to develop their employability and technical skills in a real work environment.  No other school or college in the area can offer this.
