Scarborough UTC is an educational environment that emulates the environment found within modern industry.  Learners and staff will dress in business wear as opposed to a school uniform or casual wear. 

Year 9,10 & 11 learners will wear a suit of charcoal grey colour, white shirt and a Scarborough UTC tie. 

UTC 00014

The dress code is designed as to prepare learners for work to achieve the following; 

  • A sense of identity and pride in being part of the UTC
  • Reduces the opportunity for one-upmanship via designer clothing 
  • Identifies the learner as being part of the UTC
  • Is practical for the activities to be participated in

  • A standard charcoal grey tailored suit with trousers, no skirt (No skinny/tight fitting trousers) 
  • A white long or short sleeved shirt with a collar suitable for wearing a tie
