Bradford College Plus enables students to maximise the chances of getting a job following their studies by helping gain the valuable experience which demonstrates the attitudes and skills prospective employers are looking for.

The scheme will help you to prepare for continuing education, employment, life and citizenship, giving recognition to the activities you are involved in, in addition to your main programme of study.
