Introduction to the Careers and Technical Education Programme

Bradford District’s Careers and Technical Education programme is an innovative way of providing education for young people. This approach blends work related skills and experiences, with clearer pathways into employment and higher education.

The programme provides young people with opportunities from their primary school years through to their post-secondary school years to understand occupations, careers and how the right technical and academic knowledge can support their education and career pathways. The programme aims to build a highly-skilled young workforce by better preparing young people for lifelong learning and stepping into employment.

The health and social care sector programme focuses on 10 pathways to help learners navigate their way to success.
These are:

  • Biotechnology Research & Development
  • Diagnostics Services
  • Health Informatics
  • Support Services
  • Therapeutic Services
  • Adult Health
  • Adult Social Care
  • Early Education
  • Childhood Health
  • Children’s social care

More information on these pathways will be provided soon.
