Useful first day information and help finding your way around

If you are unable to find your class/group or are not sure where to go, please go to the staff room on the subject floor, or report to the main reception on the Ground Floor. Our reception teams and ‘success makers’ (staff in pink t-shirts) will be on hand to help you during your first few days at College.

Timetables and rooms

  • When you receive your timetable, you will see floors and rooms listed in this format: 2F:03 or 2F-03 or 2F03

2F = Floor 2/2nd Floor (go up 2 sets of stairs, or use the lift and go to floor 2)
03 = Room no. 3 (Look for the classroom/room labelled 03 or 3)

  • In the David Hockney Building (DHB), every floor has the same layout, so all rooms, toilets, stairs and lifts are located in the same location.
  • Campuses with more than 1 floor are numbered by floor e.g. 1, 2, 3 or using the alphabet a, b, c (where A is floor 1, B is floor 2 and so on).
  • Some buildings are abbreviated – here is a key to help you:

DHB = The David Hockney Building
LB = Lister Building (also known as the Bradford School of Art)
ATC = Advanced Technology Centre
TGC = Trinity Green Campus
BBL = Bowling Back Lane (Motor Vehicle workshops)

Plan your visit - information about how to find our buildings.

  • If you get stuck, ask a member of staff for help. All staff wear a black lanyard. You can also ask our reception or security teams for help.

Skills Check

Our Skills Check is an online assessment that you will complete at a computer during your induction week from 2 September.

If you have not achieved a GCSE grade D (3) or above in Maths and/or English, you will be asked to sit a ‘Skills Check’. All learners who do not achieve a grade D (3) in Maths/English will be required to study these subjects at College, alongside your main study programme.

The Skills Check will make sure you study at the right level and pace for you and will help to create an individual timetable for you. The assessment can take between 30 minutes and 2 hours to complete, dependent on your skills and your tutor will be on hand to help you through the process.

Support

Don't worry about the Skills Check. Our friendly teams will be on hand to support you through the process. If you identify that you require any learning support, you have declared a learning difficulty or disability, or you were entitled to support at school, our Disability Services and Learning Support Team will be available to discuss your needs and provide appropriate support on the day (where possible).
