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.
In addition, we have Foundation Courses, which offer you a mix of class-based learning, practical experience and employability and personal development skills. You can choose a range of vocational pathways (involves tasters in a range of subject areas before you select your chosen subject) including Art & Design, Business, Catering, Childcare, Construction, Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy, Land-based studies, ICT or Sport.
You'll 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.
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 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.
