How can Burnley College help?

For young people not currently in education, employment or training, our new 6-week programme has been created to support young people to make the transition back into learning or employment.

Our friendly, approachable and supportive staff will offer individualised advice and guidance, based on what the young person is interested in.

Learners will be assigned their own mentor and the programme takes place two days a week.

Classes are small groups, with an emphasis on providing learning personalised to the individual’s needs.

Who are the ‘Pathway to…’ Programmes for?

  • Learners who were 16 years as of August 2023 – Those who finished (or were scheduled to finish) Year 11 in Summer 2023) AND
  • Those not currently in education, employment or training

Any young person who meets the criteria above is welcome to join the programme. Whatever their reasons for not currently being in education or work, we will work with learners to ensure success.
