Level up your career

Education can unlock so many different worlds, whether you want to gain skills and knowledge to boost your career or change your career direction.

As an adult returning to education you will have many demands on your time. That is why we offer a range of flexible, part-time and short course programmes. There’s something for everyone, from entry-level all the way to postgraduate study at Bradford College.

  • Back to basics, we offer Maths, English (ESOL) and employability skills to help you get back into training or employment.
  • Professional and trade qualifications and apprenticeships to give your career a boost or allow you to try a new direction.
  • Access to higher education diplomas, foundation degrees, honours and postgraduate programmes for anyone wanting university study.
  • And don’t forget our wide range of short leisure courses at a community venue near you, if you just want to try something new for fun.

We’re passionate about learning and we want to share that with you. So whatever you’re looking for – whether it’s something different or you’re one of the tens of thousands of people who already enjoy studying with us – we’ve got a course for you.
