Great courses for 14-16 students

Coming to College can be an exciting step - an opportunity to learn new things, get useful qualifications and meet new people. At Bradford College we have lots going on and great facilities.

Part-time vocational courses

We have a range of part-time vocational options for young people aged 14-16:

• Childcare and Education

• Construction

• Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy

• Motor Vehicle Studies

You will be in a small group with lots of tutor input, and you will build up a portfolio about your studies. These courses are great stepping-stones to further study or employment.

Help with languages

The College also has courses specifically for young people who have English as a second language. Our English for Speakers of Other Languages course combines English with Mathematics, visual arts and understanding local culture. The courses are full-time and students are required to undertake an assessment prior to starting the course to ensure the most appropriate level is offered.

Electively home-educated learners

Parents and carers of electively home educated learners aged 14–16 (school Years 10 and 11) can make arrangements for their child to learn part time in College. Bradford College would expect to see evidence of engagement with the Local Authority EHE team prior to application, to demonstrate commitment to suitable home education.

Parent/carers need to consider carefully their education provision for the remainder of the time. The College will not be held responsible for the education of the learner, as any arrangement would be for part-time study only to supplement suitable home provision, which is entirely the responsibility of the parent/carer.
