Bradford College created its Alternative Provision for young people who have been excluded/removed from mainstream education with the aim of reintegrating them back into learning. We work with young people and their families to overcome barriers to learning and give them the tools they need to progress on to college courses with us at post 16, another college or employment and/or further training.
Our provision focuses on teaching the core subjects of English, Science and Mathematics to GCSE level on 4 days per week, alongside other curriculum areas. Wednesdays are set aside for our young people to undertake vocational learning, and there is a good selection of courses on offer. The aim is to focus on progression with a curriculum that is shaped to meet the needs of each individual learner.
We provide an offer for both Year 10 and Year 11 students, and have capacity for up to 50 young people at Key Stage 4, across 5 teaching groups.
We believe in providing a small and dedicated teaching experience to meet the complex needs of our young people, with at least 1 teacher and 2 support staff per group.
We have a fully qualified teaching team who are specialists in their subject areas. We teach young people to the national external examination level for GCSE, Functional Skills and Unit Awards.
We provide a full curriculum with an academic and vocational focus, linking to Bradford College in order to progress students. To support and encourage attendance and engagement, we also offer a breakfast and lunch club which provide complimentary hot and cold options.
