14 -16 Curriculum

School Link Provision at Selby College

Selby College currently offers two types of programmes for school age learners:



Selby College are very proud of it’s Early College Transfer (ECT) programme which offers schools and students in Year 11 a challenging alternative curriculum for a specific group of learners.

It provides students who may be disengaged in mainstream school, or for whom school is not considered to be the best option, the opportunity to complete their final year of school with us at College. The provision is also suitable for elected home school students who are registered with the local EHE team.

ECT is a full-time provision where students attend College for 3 days each week and are infilled into a Post 16 group in a vocational subject area of their choice – typically at level 1.

Learners will combine this vocational subject with qualifications in Maths and English.

The students will remain on school role and the home school are responsible for organising any additional learning or work experience for the learner on days when they are not in college.

One year full time provision normally equating to 17 hours per week for 36 weeks.

Minimum £9.80 per pupil per hour.



Technical Awards are broad, high quality level 1 and 2 qualifications that equip students with applied knowledge and associated practical skills not usually acquired through general education.

Our new programme of study offers accredited two/three year part-time courses for school-age learners in Years 9,10 and 11. These vocational qualifications carry Performance Points which contribute towards Progress and Attainment 8.
