Full-Time Pathways Offer:

For 2016-17, Bradford College is offering a number of Vocational Pathways.

These pathways offer students aged 14-16 the opportunity to experience a wider range of sector-focused skills and an insight into a wider range of career opportunities within a skills sector, each of which is linked to a nationally-recognised vocational qualification. As an integral component of the Vocational Pathways Programme, students study and undertake a package of four GCSEs (English, Mathematics, Science and Citizenship).

Each student will have an individual Learning Mentor/Coach to oversee their progress and their pastoral care whilst on the programme.

The Vocational Pathways Offer:

• The Service Industry Pathway
• The Construction and Engineering Pathway - Linked to a STEM Pathway (Engineering and Science)
• The Beauty Industry Pathway
• The Health and Care Pathway.

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.

There is also a range of other full-time Level 1 and Level 2 packages available.  Please see the prospectus for further information.
