Barnet and Southgate College Young College Guide 2013/14


What iS Young College?

Young College is the largest 14 to 16 Alternative Provider in the Borough of Enfield and surrounding area. The cohort consists of a diverse mix of students, who join the College for a myriad of reasons, resulting in many and complex barriers to learning. These have to be broken down in order for the students to successfully participate in education and progress into further training, apprenticeship or work post-16. Many of the learners who join Young College full time courses have particular issues around behaviour and attitude, attendance and punctuality that mean that they will not succeed at school. In November 2011 Southgate College Merged with Barnet College, this has given Young College the opportunity to provide its unique blend to a wider audience.

In 2010-11, the Young College made provision for approximately 721 14-16 year olds; referred from across Enfield, Barnet and other Boroughs. There were 150 full-time learners who benefited from programmes at Foundation level or GCSE, designed to engage those who were unlikely to achieve at KS4 elsewhere, or an ESOL programme for those unable to access the school curriculum because of language needs. In addition there were a significant number of part-time learners who were referred by local partner schools to study vocational subjects either as part of their KS4 options or as short courses. Delivery of general courses are mostly undertaken by staff from within the Young College area with some servicing in by vocational subject specialists from other areas of the college.
