The support given from tutors at the Bradford College University Centre is unmatched. I could not have achieved what I have, without their continuous support and encouragement. The Teaching department ... is filled with friendly, approachable staff who go above and beyond to ensure the success of every student.

Our students tend to come from local communities and many are currently in employment in a teaching or other role in education. The Foundation Degree in Supporting and Managing Learning in Education is the only course that requires a current placement or that you are in paid employment. Teaching sessions draw on a rich variety of personal and professional experience which enhances discussions. The teaching teams come from a variety of sectors and professional backgrounds and all are teacher educators. The School receives excellent feedback from the National Student Survey and module and course reviews. Your educational journey is important to us.
