TES: Revealed: UTC attainment gap for pre and post-16s

New research finds that while 14-year-olds who enrol at University Technical Colleges (UTCs) get significantly worse GCSE results than their peers, 16-year-olds who enrol at a UTC outperform their peers in skills and technical education. It also uncovers evidence that the age at which students move to UTCs - currently 14 - needs serious policy consideration.
