Liverpool Life Sciences University Technical College (UTC) offers a new concept in education. It gives 14-19 year olds the opportunity to take a highly-regarded, full-time, professionally-oriented programme of study specialising in either Science or Health. Responding to growing demands from the sector for well-educated, high-calibre employees and apprentices, the College combines hand and mind to integrate national curriculum requirements with technical and practical elements. The UTC brings together the University of Liverpool, The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital Trust and major local employers like Novartis, Redx Pharma, Actavis and Pro-Lab Diagnostics.
Teachers at a school specialising in Science and Health Care for 14 to 19-year olds sacrificed their beards In December to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust. Liverpool Life Sciences UTC has been supporting the charity after one of their students endured a long and difficult struggle with cancer.
