Whether you’re an aspiring graphic designer, care assistant, tree surgeon, software developer or personal

trainer, we can help you get there! We understand that everyone learns differently, so we have put together

some information to help you decide what’s right for you.

A FULL-TIME STUDY PROGRAMME

Study for approximately 16 hours per week at

our campus in Saltaire. Full-time courses take a

practical approach to studying, with a combination

of coursework, assessed units and exams. Work

can include building a portfolio, practical tasks and

presentations, as well as the chance to gain handson

experience through placements. All of these

elements, plus PSHE study, will form part of your

final grade.

Additional English & Maths

If you do not achieve GCSE grade 4 or above in

English & maths, you will have the chance to

continue to study these alongside some of our fulltime

courses.

If you enrol on a Level 3 course and have already

achieved GCSE grade 4 or above in English or

maths, you will have the opportunity to complete

AS English Language or Core Maths.

Progressions

Your study programme will prepare you for the

world of work or help you progress onto the next

level of study in your course, head to university

or start an apprenticeship. Level 3 courses are

equivalent to up to 3 A Levels and provide you with

the UCAS points needed to support a university

application.

T LEVELS - THE NEXT LEVEL

QUALIFICATION

Ideal for ambitious students who are looking for

their next challenge

T-Levels are a 2-year qualification that can help

launch your career working with employers

from the very start of the course. You spend 80%

of your time in the classroom and 20% doing

practical learning through industry placements

over 45-60 days. The qualification has been

designed with leading employers such as BBC,

IBM, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Royal Society of

Chemistry.

T Levels are equivalent to 3 A Levels, which means

you can earn UCAS points to support entry to

university.

TRAINEESHIPS

An alternative route to employment

Are you aged 16-24 but still not sure what is right

for you? We know it is not always easy to find the

right role, especially when you have little or no work

experience and few qualifications. Traineeships help

bridge the gap between the skills that you have and

those that employers need.

our T-Levels?

> Digital Business Services (Data/Information

Technician)

If you would like to study a T Level but do not

work on group projects, and learn the roles and

responsibilities of professionals in your chosen

industry area. These include: Digital, Education

& Childcare, Health, Accounting & Finance and

Management Administration.

For each team project, you will be set a brief by

an employer, to identify a problem and work from

concept through to completion. The project aims to

teach you effective time management and develop

your confidence in your chosen career path area.

You will continue to study English and maths on this

programme, so that you can resit them to achieve

the required level needed for a T Level course.

WHAT’S BEEN

HAPPENING?

TESTING TIME FOR STUDENTS

Our Health & Social Care students got involved

with Covid testing during the pandemic, stepping

up to the challenge and putting their learning

into practice. Student Fiza said she not only loved

having the opportunity to gain work experience,

but also made so many new friends.

“I am so proud. The students

demonstrated such care and compassion,

they are fantastic young adults. We are

very grateful to them for all of their

hard work and commitment.”

Jennifer Thetford-Kay, Course Tutor

HISTORY ON DISPLAY

Corridors in the Salt and Exhibition buildings are

now home to displays detailing the history of the

College premises from 1860 to present day.

The Saltaire World Heritage Education Association

(SWHEA) unveiled 50 storyboards and artifacts

that aim to keep village founder Titus Salt’s legacy

alive.

“We are thrilled that the installation is in

place for the students and hope that they

will inspire new insights into the past and

present for all the people who use and visit

these spaces.”

Rachael Durrett, SWHEA Chair

ISMAH IS A FASHION WINNER

Art & Design student Ismah became the proud winner of this year’s fashion

design competition run by Bradford School of Art. Following the brief of

‘Home’ for her creation, Ismah’s interpretation was based on living spaces for

sea creatures. The fabulous design was inspired by the majestic Orca whale,

using crushed velvet to resemble its skin with white sculpting panels that

mimic its markings.

LETTERS TO LONDON

During the pandemic, our English GCSE students revived the art of letter

writing and connected with pen pals at Waltham College in London.

They shared their experience of living and studying in Bradford as well as

some facts on the history of Saltaire. Having a purpose to their writing led to

some of the students’ best work and the creation of new friendships.

15


CTE AWARDS

Students across College were celebrated at the Careers & Technical Education

(CTE) Awards for their amazing achievements throughout their studies with us.

They were nominated amongst other students in Bradford but won because of

their exceptional progress and willingness to go above and beyond. Business

Student of the Year Hibah was thrilled and said ‘It’s down to putting in the hard

work, having determination and staying motivated’.

STUDENTS GET CLOSER TO

NATURE

Giving back to the community is important

at College, and this year the Supported

Interns worked with the Hirst Wood

Regeneration Group to replant beds with

fruits & herbs, and created bug hotels from

recycled materials. The students gained

valuable work experience that will help with

their future and created something they can

watch grow over the seasons.

16


WHAT A PERFORMANCE!

Music Technology students celebrated

the end of term with a fabulous live

performance out on the lawn of our Salt

Building. They chose their own songs and

worked with the tutors to get performanceready,

drawing crowds on the day who

loved seeing live music again.

“I can’t thank you enough for helping me

grow as a musician. I definitely won’t forget

my time at Shipley College.”
