The College offers a wide range of Vocational and A Level programmes for 16 to 19-year-olds, with over 40 A Level subjects and 80 vocational programmes.
We offer support for students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities (SEN) including specialist staffing, equipment and resources and can make reasonable adjustments in discussion with the student, whether or not they have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP). There is also a specialist programme for 16 to 24-year-old young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities who would like to study at entry level or level 1.
Please see below for the inspiring story of Ellie and her experience of the support offered at York College:
York College offers an entry level programme called Pathway to Work and Independent Living. This programme enables students to study at one of three levels: Entry 1, Entry 2 and Entry 3. You do not need qualifications for these courses, they can be personalised to suit the particular needs of the student. Young people study Functional Skills (literacy, numeracy and ICT), Personal and Social Development and work towards vocational/job-related qualifications. You do not need qualifications for these courses, which can be personalised to suit the particular needs of the student.
Other entry-level 1 and level 3 programmes are available in certain vocational areas for those young people with a clear idea of what they would like to do.
