Curriculum

City College supports students and provides them with opportunities, whether they wish to progress to university post-18, or enter the world of work, as well as exclusive programmes that help you accrue funds towards higher education or business plans.

Typically, students take 3 subjects at Level 3 (this can be a combination of A level and BTEC qualifications), constituting 180 guided learning hours per subject, per year.

Our inclusive curriculum complies with the expectations of the Equalities Act (2010) and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations (2014), ensuring that the curriculum is accessible to all students at City College, including students with special educational needs or disabilities. This is outlined in our Equality & Diversity Policy, SEND Policy, and Students With Medical Needs Policy.

City College follows the 16 to 19 study programmes: guidance (2021 to 2022 academic year) from the DfE. This means that all students all funded through the 16-19 funding methodology. In addition, this means that all study programmes have a core aim and include either work experience or non-qualification activities. Furthermore, study programmes are flexible programmes built around the needs of individual students. More information is available here.

City College will support students’ ambitions, working with them closely to ensure they have the best chance of creating the future they want. We offer various Pathways for learners at a range of levels, helping you shape but not limit your potential future choices in Higher Education and employment. The L3 pathways only act as guides, helping inform possible learning routes.
