The Duke of York Award for Technical Education

On 8th December, 2014 The Duke hosted The Duke of York Award for Technical Education at St James’s Palace. The awards celebrate the achievements of students in University Technical Colleges (UTC’s) across the United Kingdom. This year, 120 students from The JCB Academy in Staffordshire, Black Country UTC, Hackney UTC and UTC Central Bedfordshire received The Duke of York Award for Technical Education.

The Duke of York Award for Technical Education was launched in July 2013.  2014 is the second year that students from University Technical Colleges (UTC’s) have been recognised with Bronze, Silver or Gold Awards. The Bronze and Silver Awards are based on achievements in GCSEs and Level 1 or 2 Technical Qualifications, while the Gold Award is based on A Levels and/or Level 3 Technical Qualifications.

Each year there are two special awards presented. In 2014, The Outstanding Progress Award was received by Danish Akram and The Outstanding Achievement Award was received by James Gratton.
