School Partnerships

Keighley College has a long and successful history of working in partnership with schools, Pupil Referral Units, youth and community organisations across the Keighley and Bradford area.

We are a team of passionate, committed educators who have a wealth of experience in delivering vocational qualifications within Keighley College to school students from year 9 to year 13.

The schools team works across every curriculum faculty at the College to offer programmes and accreditation at all levels to ensure that every student is catered for. The College recognises the value of working in collaboration with schools, parent/carers and students in promoting opportunities; we work closely with a large number of schools and other partners to design and deliver accredited vocational programmes for school students.

We currently work with a broad range of schools and providers offering a range of vocational courses which help to provide individual students with a vibrant learning experience.
