Schools 14-16 provision

BCA can provide schools with the opportunity to partner in specialist 14-16 programmes. We offer students in year 10 and 11 the opportunity to study a college course alongside their existing GCSE subjects at school. A 14-16 programme in partnership with you.

A partnership with BCA will enhance your schools’ programme with the benefit of specialist knowledge, realistic working environments and excellent facilities including vast grounds, an animal centre, floristry workshop, sport facilities, outdoor adventure centre and motor vehicle workshops. The 14-16 course programmes provide nationally recognise qualifications which combine practical skills development and academic content, highly valued by employers and effective at fast-tracking students into work. Research also shows that exam success rates improve through vocational learning, as students are happier and more fulfilled when their learning is centred on practical work experience. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.


The Schools Transition Programme is specifically aimed at individual learners in school
years 10 & 11 who are experiencing difficulties accessing mainstream education or are
home educated.

The course provides opportunities to return to learning. The programme, where possible,
is tailored to each individual learner, providing a flexible return to study e.g. a phased
introduction to BCA. The programme will include a vocational area of choice with the
opportunity to access English, Maths and Science.

If on school role these can work in partnership with the students’ other studies at school
for up to a maximum of 3 days a week. If home educated the course is for a maximum
of 2 days a week.

Vocational Areas Include:

  • Animal Care
  • Horticulture
  • Agriculture
  • Motor Vehicle
  • Bushcraft
There may also be opportunities to access other vocational areas within the college.
