SALTAIRE STORIES PROJECT

Shipley College owns a unique collection of archive

WHAT SOME OF OUR CURRENT APPRENTICES SAY:

“LLOYDS BANK

Student Name: Joshua

Former Infrastructure Technician Advanced Apprentice

‘An apprenticeship was ideal for me because I needed experience

that employers want in order to gain an IT support role. I gained

this working as an IT Support Technician across two primary

schools, whilst studying towards a qualification.

After my apprenticeship, I was offered a fixed term contract with

the two schools, and since then I have secured a job with Lloyds

Banking Group as a 1st Line Support Analyst.

I would recommend apprenticeships because they give you the

opportunity to learn the skills and knowledge needed to progress

in to the area of work you want to be in and they will kick start

your career, as it has mine.’

“BECKFOOT SCHOOL

Student Name: Amy

Digital Marketing Advanced Apprentice

‘I have always wanted to do an apprenticeship because the

‘hands-on’ learning has helped me gain the experience I need,

whilst building up my knowledge through my Level 3 course.

One of the main things I love about my job is the variety of work

I do, including working on campaigns or designing leaflets. My

apprenticeship has given me the chance to prove myself and it

has improved my confidence and skill set which will help me in

the future. After I have completed my apprenticeship, I would like

to further my career in Digital Marketing.’

ADVANCED LEARNER LOAN

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN A COURSE, BUT NOT

SURE IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO PAY THE FEES AT THIS

TIME, YOU CAN APPLY FOR AN ADVANCED LEARNER

LOAN TO HELP YOU WITH THE COSTS. THEY ARE FOR

ANYONE AGED 19 AND OVER TO HELP FUND THE

TUITION FEES TO STUDY QUALIFICATIONS AT

LEVEL 3 OR 4.

REPAYMENTS ON THE LOAN DON’T BEGIN UNTIL YOU

START TO EARN MORE THAN £25,000 PER YEAR AND

AFTER YOU COMPLETE THE COURSE.

For more information about the Advanced Learner Loan and

how to apply, please see page 60.

“‘Having done a 3 month course in Horticulture with the College,

I knew I wanted a career change in to this area. My concern was

how I could afford the Level 3 Horticulture Diploma course.

I borrowed the full cost of it, over £3000, through the Advanced

Learner Loan. It was easy to apply as it was done online.

It has helped me develop a career in environmentally-friendly,

therapeutic horticulture which helps people with physical &

mental health issues. Once I have completed my course,

I will gain further practical experience and gain a therapeutic

horticulture qualification. Without the Advanced Learner Loan,

I would not have been able to pursue my dream career.’

INTRODUCTION TO MINDFULNESS

No fee reduction available

In a busy world where there are lots of demands for our attention, we can become stressed and anxious. Mindfulness helps us to see

clearly what is going on in our lives and, rather than worrying about what has happened or might happen, it trains us to respond skilfully

to whatever is happening right now, be that good or bad. It will not eliminate life’s pressures, but in this introductory course you can learn

to use mindfulness practices to help respond to difficulties in a calmer manner that benefits your head, heart and body.

INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY: UNDERSTANDING YOURSELF AND OTHERS WITH KEITH RICE

This Beginners course aims to introduce students to a number of areas of Psychology, including the concept of ‘self’, the importance

of beliefs and values, the impact of gender differences on male-female relationships and the criticality of attachments during child

PSYCHOLOGY TOPIC: GRANDPARENTS, PARENTS & TEENAGERS WITH KEITH RICE

No fee reduction available

This is one of two psychology topics which build on the Introductory course, ‘Understanding Yourself and Others’. It provides a more

in-depth approach to a key area to help you explore specific interests under discussion or build knowledge of psychology and behavioural

sciences. Attendance on the Introductory course is helpful, but not essential, as recaps and additional study material will be provided.

This course looks at how, on the one hand, values are transmitted down the generations; on the other hand, values are shaped by

cultural and societal elements. There are also individual temperamental and experiential factors that lead to value variations within

generations and even within close-knit families. Using the material on this course, participants will be able to identify the causes of

values conflicts between parents and their children – especially teenagers. For grandparents, generational values shifts can seem

bewildering. This course will give older people the knowledge to understand how and why these shifts occur and some ideas on how

they can stay ‘in tune’ with their children and grandchildren.

No fee reduction available

This is one of two psychology topics which build on the Introductory course, ‘Understanding Yourself and Others’. It provides a more

in-depth approach to a key area to help you explore specific interests under discussion or build knowledge of psychology and behavioural

sciences. Attendance on the Introductory course is helpful, but not essential, as recaps and additional study material will be provided.

The first part of this course looks at socio-psychological explanations of how and why people tend towards particular political

preferences. It also looks at how political systems are changing and why longstanding traditional party allegiances are breaking down.

The relationship of intelligence, brain structure and political preference is explored. Certain brains prefer certain politics – myth or reality?

The second part of the course looks at how to manage conflicts – from the micro (e.g: a husband and wife locked in to a long-running

dispute) to the macro (e.g: countries threatening each other with war). Some key conflict management models will be explored, including

the one used to end Apartheid in South Africa. Participants will have the opportunity to consider their own conflict patterns in

a safe environment.

CLASS CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY

Prior to the commencement of a course, the College will consider an application for the refund of fees.

The College will refund fees if the course fails to start or if it is cancelled by the College within 3 weeks

of the start date due to low enrolments. Once the course has started, refunds are not available in any

other circumstances.

If a class is cancelled for reasons beyond the College’s control, such as bad weather, the College will

attempt to give as much warning as possible. While every attempt will be made to replace a cancelled

class, we regret that the College cannot guarantee to do so. Where it proves impossible to do so,

the College will not make a refund.
