The College’s mission is to inspire and support people who have yet to fulfill their potential. This often means learners come from hard to reach groups such as young people who are not in education, employment or training – so called NEETs.

The focus of provision is on meeting the learning needs of disadvantaged groups and individuals; many of who come from Bradford’s most economically and socially deprived communities. The College offers a welcoming, friendly and supportive learning environment underpinned by an enthusiastic and committed workforce. The College also recognises the importance of focusing vocational learning and training on the needs of local employers.
