Students on the CE:BE programme will study an academic curriculum - GCSEs and A-Levels alongside technical qualifications such as BTEC and City & Guilds. The unique difference is that all academic study relates to the employer - focused projects enabling them to gain a real insight into the world of work, giving them a distinct advantage over their peers.

CE:BE will give students access to outstanding industry facilities spread across a number of sites in the Bradford District - providing them with a greater opportunity to meet industry professionals, and like-minded young people.

A CE:BE student, whether they start at 14 or 16 years of age, will have an individual learning plan (ILP) underpinned by their chosen Built Environment Career Pathway. They will be fully supported by all education partners and employers, to ensure they fulfil their potential as a CE:BE student; this may mean going straight into work, entering onto an apprenticeship or moving into higher education. All these options are available depending on what's right for you.
