Subject: Important update for schools and colleges from Bradford College
The Engagement Team at Bradford College would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that we are still available to support your students through these difficult times. We are still accepting applications and are continuing to work towards welcoming students, new and returning, to College in the next academic year. We have transformed our admissions service to reflect these uncertain times – all applicants will now get a named point of contact and regular (monthly) text messages, emails and phone calls from their named officer. Our new online application form (https://www.bradfordcollege.ac.uk/about/apply) will give them reassurance through the provision of an instant text message as soon as they apply.
We encourage you to ask your students to provide an email address that is not a school based one – this is to ensure we can keep in touch when they have left you. Finally we are working to give you summary information about your year groups so you know how many and who have applied.
The Engagement Team are currently working from home and we assure you we are also using this time to ensure our Progression Package offer to schools for next academic year is exciting, sustained and adaptable to meet the needs of your school.
We will aim to send regular updates to schools over the coming weeks containing helpful information and links, for your Year 11 and Year 13 students to help them prepare for their next steps. The team is currently working on exactly how this might look (possibly an online package of resources and career focused activities). If there is anything in particular that you (or your students) need please do not hesitate to contact me or a member of the Engagement Team and we will do our best to help.
Please share this communication with other colleagues in your school or college. (Apologies if you receive this email more than once, we are working to update and streamline our database of key contacts).
