School Description

City of Bristol College is a large further education college with four campuses across Bristol. At the time of the inspection, 3,113 students were enrolled on education programmes for young people (EPYP). The majority of these students followed programmes at entry level to level 2. A minority of students were on vocational and academic programmes at level 3. The largest subject areas were foundation learning, construction, crafts, and creative arts and design. There were over 5,000 adult students, mainly on English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) and English and mathematics programmes. There were 684 on apprenticeship programmes, with the most popular sector areas being construction, engineering, and business administration. The vast majority of apprentices were enrolled at levels 2 and 3, with the rest studying at levels 4 and 5. There were 706 students with high needs, of whom around half were on programmes specifically designed for students with high needs. In addition, the college works with five subcontractors, who deliver mostly adult and high needs programmes.

“Not a good college”

"> Teachers I have met show a lack of further knowledge of subjects. The general organisation of the school is also really sub-standard, having to wait 2-3 weeks to get replies to emails.
