Enrolment Type
This Course Meets The Needs Of The Region By
We offer visits to different work settings in the local area, discuss skills required and training available. This helps build our curriculum to prepare young people for their next step.
Trips And Visits
We have offered experience of volunteering with fruit picking at Yorkshire Heart Vineyard and visits to different work settings to learn about types of jobs available. Health and well being walks and camping at Sconce Campsite in Baildon. Catering experience in the cafes in Shipley College. Horticulture experiences in the College gardens and allotments.
Is There Anything Else I Need To Know
Volunteering opportunities in local churches, such as Warm Spaces - these areas provide a safe warm space where people can come together and enjoy a warm meal and social interaction. Our students help with setting up the space and serving food and drinks to local people interacting and clearing down at the end of the day.
Former Students
We nominated our student Adam for an Active Citizen Award for volunteering and community work. He came in 3rd place out of lots of young people in the Bradford area and was invited to a presentation event at the The Bradford Hotel.
A Favourite Moment Of Last Year Was
Our students get the opportunity to visit a vineyard near York and experience fruit picking. The students love these days, and they thrive on the competition of who can fill the most buckets with grapes and if they can beat last year's target. This year we had mixed weather on ths visit, rainy and cold, then a blue sky day with lots of sunshine, but this did not change the motivation of the students in any way.
