Finding the right course for you<br />

<strong>College</strong> is more than just a course, it’s your next step to success! Whether you’re an<br />

aspiring graphic designer, care assistant, tree surgeon or personal trainer to name<br />

a few careers, <strong>Shipley</strong> <strong>College</strong> can help you get there! We understand that everyone<br />

learns differently, so to help you decide what’s right for you, read on...<br />

BTEC Study Programme<br />

Do you have a specific career in mind?<br />

Choosing a BTEC gives you the chance to tailor<br />

your education to follow your passion. You will gain<br />

hands-on experience in the subject that interests you<br />

the most. These courses take a practical approach<br />

to studying, with a combination of coursework and<br />

assessed units. Choosing a BTEC course can open<br />

doors to university, an apprenticeship or the first<br />

step in your chosen career.<br />

What you need to know:<br />

• <strong>Full</strong>-<strong>time</strong> BTEC students study approximately<br />

16 hours a week at our campus in Saltaire.<br />

• You will have the opportunity to gain experience<br />

of work both at the <strong>College</strong> and through external<br />

work placements.<br />

• Level 3 BTEC grades are equivalent to 3 A Levels,<br />

which means you can earn UCAS points which<br />

support entry to university.<br />

NEW for <strong>2020</strong><br />

T Levels<br />

Are you ready to study the next level qualification?<br />

We are delighted to be one of the first colleges in<br />

the country to be offering brand new T Levels. These<br />

2-year technical qualifications are demanding, but<br />

will help launch your career working with employers<br />

from the start of the course.<br />

What you need to know:<br />

• T Levels are new 2-year high quality technical<br />

qualifications.<br />

• You spend 45-60 days on an industry<br />

placement, giving you the skills employers in<br />

these industries value & need.<br />

• 80% of this course is classroom based and 20% is<br />

practical learning on industry placement.<br />

• T Levels are equivalent to 3 A Levels, which means<br />

you can earn UCAS points to support entry to<br />

university.<br />

Please see pages 20 & <strong>21</strong> for more information<br />

about the T Level in Digital Production, Design<br />

& Development and the T Level in Education &<br />

Childcare. We also have a Level 2 Transition course<br />

for the T Level in Digital.<br />

Traineeships<br />

An alternative route to employment<br />

Are you 16-24 but still not sure what is right for you?<br />

We know it is not always easy to find the right role<br />

for you, especially when you have little or no work<br />

experience and few qualifications. Traineeships help<br />

bridge the gap between the skills that you have and<br />

those that employers need.<br />

Apprenticeships<br />

Would you like to earn while you learn?<br />

As an apprentice, you will study towards a<br />

qualification whilst gaining important work<br />

experience. This means you have the opportunity of<br />

starting your career working your chosen area and<br />

gaining the skills, knowledge and behaviours which<br />

employers look for.<br />

What you need to know:<br />

• Anyone aged 16+ can apply for an apprenticeship.<br />

• You will be employed and paid directly by a<br />

company while studying for your qualification.<br />

• Most apprentices will be in work for four days plus<br />

one day at <strong>College</strong> each week.<br />

• Your apprenticeship can take between one and<br />

two years to complete.<br />

• The minimum salary is currently £3.90 per<br />

hour (correct at October 2019), however, many<br />

employers pay significantly more.<br />

• A Level 3 Apprenticeship is equivalent to 2-3<br />

A Levels which can lead to, or be an alternative to,<br />

university.<br />

Still not sure?<br />

Think about what subjects you enjoy, your<br />

interests or what inspires you. Where would you<br />

like college to take you - a job or university? Talk<br />

to careers advisors, friends and family too.<br />

A FEW HIGHLIGHTS<br />

FROM THE<br />

YEAR<br />

Travel &<br />

Tourism students<br />

Christmas Appeal<br />

Travel & Tourism students organised a Christmas<br />

Appeal to help two charities. The Yorkshire Children’s<br />

Trust benefitted from toys & books which for children<br />

aged 4-10 who were spending Christmas in hospitals<br />

across Yorkshire. Toiletries and food items were given to<br />

the Trussell Food Bank for distribution to those in need at<br />

Christmas.<br />

“The amount of support we have received for our Christmas<br />

present appeal has been fantastic and we couldn’t have<br />

done it without your help. We are proud to say that we<br />

have helped make a difference to lots of people’s<br />

lives this Christmas.”<br />

Vicki Horsman, Travel & Tourism<br />

Tutor<br />

Media<br />

students promoting<br />

Baildon RUFC<br />

Media students held a presentation to showcase<br />

the videos they had produced for Baildon Rugby Club.<br />

The Coach & Director, Chair of the Rugby Club, <strong>College</strong><br />

Governors and members of staff all attended. Students<br />

collected footage of rugby games, spoke to players, their<br />

parents & club sponsors and compiled these into four<br />

separate videos.<br />

“We shared the videos on our social media and received a<br />

fantastic response. Other rugby clubs who had seen them<br />

thought the videos had been done by professionals! We are<br />

really happy with the end product, and this is hopefully<br />

the start of a relationship between ourselves and<br />

<strong>Shipley</strong> <strong>College</strong>.”<br />

Andy, the Coach & Director of<br />

Baildon Rugby Club<br />

Students<br />

pitch for funding for<br />

a local charity<br />

Students took part in the First Give project which<br />

encourages young people to identify social issues in<br />

their area and engage with charities to address them.<br />

Teams carried out research to identify local charities<br />

they felt would benefit from a £1000 funding boost and<br />

pitched to a panel of judges.<br />

The judges chose the Down Syndrome Training &<br />

Support Service after Level 3 Creative Media students<br />

created posters, organised raffles and made two<br />

compelling videos to raise awareness. They<br />

shared and promoted the videos using the<br />

hashtag #dontscreenusout. Well done<br />

to the winning Media team.<br />

<strong>Shipley</strong> <strong>College</strong> win EFCA<br />

Pan-Disability Football Final<br />

Students from across the country battled it out to<br />

become national champions in the English <strong>College</strong>’s<br />

Football Association Pan Disability Finals in Staffordshire.<br />

The <strong>Shipley</strong> <strong>College</strong> team, who are Foundation Level students,<br />

faced Walsall <strong>College</strong> in the final – a team who had remained<br />

unbeaten in all of the qualifiers – but our students raced in to<br />

a 4-2 lead by half <strong>time</strong>. The final whistle was met with wild<br />

celebrations!<br />

Damian Butters from Essential Skills commented that<br />

‘“The students did the college proud and they gave<br />

everything! To see their faces at the final whistle will live<br />

long in my memory.”<br />

Well done to our students and all the<br />

staff who have supported them in<br />

their exciting journey.<br />

Robbie<br />

Hunter-Paul visits CE:B<br />

Former professional Bradford Bulls rugby<br />

player turned sports pundit & successful Marketing<br />

company owner visited CE:B students in April. Robbie<br />

spoke about growing up in New Zealand, being signed to<br />

Bradford Bulls at 18, as well as challenges he has faced during<br />

his professional and personal life. He talked about the need for<br />

hard work and determination, and the importance of never giving<br />

up no matter how hard you find things.<br />

Robbie also mentioned after he retired from rugby, he attended<br />

university and gained a degree in Marketing & Public Relations<br />

before launching his own, now successful, company Xtra Mile<br />

Marketing. Students enjoyed his inspirational talk, with one<br />

saying “He made me feel like I could start my own business.<br />

I know now it will take a lot of hard work, but Robbie made<br />

me realise it’s worth all the hard work and dedication.”<br />

Former<br />

student praises<br />

<strong>Shipley</strong> <strong>College</strong><br />

‘<strong>Shipley</strong> <strong>College</strong> was the foundation to<br />

my small-scale success story. I enrolled<br />

on to the Health & Social Care course<br />

intending to become a child nurse, not<br />

knowing I would go on to qualify from an<br />

amazing university as an Occupational<br />

Therapist. The course at <strong>Shipley</strong> was<br />

enriched with knowledge, opportunities<br />

and real-life practice, and the support<br />

was phenomenal. I also had the<br />

opportunity to showcase the skills I had<br />

learnt by taking part in the WorldSkills<br />

Competition. The knowledge I have<br />

acquired on my course equipped me with<br />

the essential skills at university to deliver<br />

optimal care for patients, alongside<br />

collaborating with other professionals.<br />

Overall, my education at <strong>Shipley</strong> <strong>College</strong><br />

helped me at university as it prepared<br />

me with the relevant knowledge and<br />

experience to expand my skills further.<br />

Finally, due to the various teaching and<br />

assessment methods, I was able to<br />

develop my confidence which helped me<br />

at university when I was representing<br />

pieces of work at formal conferences.’<br />
