The BTE Academy will specialise in Engineering and Environmental Technology and provide facilities for 440 students from Bristol, Bath, South Gloucestershire and North East Somerset.

University Technical Colleges are a recent concept in education, offering 14-19 year-olds the opportunity to take full-time technically-oriented courses of study alongside national curriculum requirements, business skills and ICT.

They are sponsored by a university and supported by local and national employers, with the BTE Academy supported by both City of Bristol College and the University of the West of England. It has employer links with Rolls Royce, Airbus and GKN.
