Substantial investment has gone into creating attractive, well resourced campuses where you can study in safety and comfort. We encourage our students to be actively involved with the college and joining our Student Council is a great way to be part of student led initiatives, directly influencing life on our college campuses.

Our Campuses

We continue to invest significant funds in our accommodation to provide industry standard facilities for all our students.

The Aireville Campus Gargrave Road, Skipton

The Aviation Academy Leeds Bradford International Airport

Centre for Rural & Equine Studies Auction Mart, Skipton

Centre for Construction & Heritage Skills Airedale Business Park, Skipton

Centre for Service Industries High Street, Skipton

Our main campus is located next to Aireville Park. Here you will find our School of Art, Media & Performance which has a longstanding reputation for excellence. Courses are taught in a stimulating and creative environment in an extensive, modern purpose built centre including a permanent radio station. Our business, management and computing courses are also taught on this campus with up-graded teaching and specialist IT suites. It is also the centre for delivering our education and early years provision, health related subjects, travel & tourism, sport, outdoor & public services and humanities courses and is home to our A Level Centre. You will also find The Hub – home to Student Services, The Shop and The Enterprise Zone. In September 2011 we opened the Pen-y-ghent building including 20 additional large teaching spaces, state of the art science suite, dedicated Life Skills area and Changing Places facility and much more.

All our aviation related programmes are delivered at our prestigious, unique air-side campus at Leeds Bradford International Airport so that you can experience the real world of work within the aviation industry.

The centre provides a wide range of courses run by exceptionally skilled and experienced teaching staff. Situated in the centre of Skipton’s Auction Mart complex, it benefits from close contact with the agricultural businesses based there. There is an extensive horticulture unit and a garden design studio; a fully equipped rural mechanics and motor vehicle workshop; a purpose built equestrian centre; a construction area for land based skills; a dry stone walling site and an animal care unit. In September 2011 a new animal unit and workshop and rural mechanics workshop opened at the centre. Teaching areas are well equipped with IT facilities. The centre is also used as the base for our outdoor activities programmes with a climbing wall to enable students to develop practical climbing and instruction skills. (When not in use for teaching purposes, it can be used by college students under supervision.)

The unique and ground breaking Centre for Construction & Heritage Skills is designed to deliver both contemporary and traditional craft skills. In addition to the well equipped workshops for practical construction skills training, within over 5500 square metres of purpose built facilities, there are heritage workshops for blacksmithing, forge work, stone carving and stained glass making. There is a state of the art materials testing laboratory and classroom IT facilities.

Set in the heart of Skipton is the original college building. This is our Centre for Service Industries housing catering, hospitality, hair and beauty courses. In September 2011 a new state of the art catering training kitchen opened in the High Street Campus.

Because we carry out training for the aviation industry we are always up-to-date in what we do and you will benefit from this. Our tutors have been recruited from the industry too and will be able to guide you towards your career aspirations through their wealth of experience and contacts. You can even take flying lessons with one of our partner organisations as one of the many benefits of the location.

In September 2011 a new and improved joinery classroom and machine shop opened to add to the existing facilities. The substantial workshops offer industry standard training facilities.

We also operate commercial salons and the Brasserie restaurant so our students can experience what it is like to apply their practical skills in a real working environment and understand issues around running a business. As an additional bonus any student can use these facilities.

The Academy of Hair & Beauty, Skipton We have two Hair & Beauty salons in the centre of Skipton plus the sports therapy base at The Auction Mart. All offer professional modern training facilities for Craven College students studying hairdressing, beauty and sports therapy. All of our staff have relevant and current industrial experience and regularly update their skills, giving you the best tuition and guidance. As a bonus all Craven College students receive a 10% discount on available services at the salons. New Hair & Beauty facilities for the High Street Campus are currently being planned.

A Level Introduction

In 2011 Craven College students celebrated success across a wide range of A Levels with over 30 subjects studied with a 100% pass rate in 29 subjects including Languages, Art & Design subjects, the Sciences, Photography, Maths and Business and an overall pass rate of 98%.

Craven College’s A Level Centre offers the broadest range of subjects in the local area, combining academic rigour with a vibrant learning environment on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. We aim to provide a range of subjects that are not always available in schools, to broaden your choices and opportunities for study which can lead to a greater range of employment and Higher Education opportunities. There are opportunities to specialise in course related subjects, resulting in an in–depth knowledge of particular areas. Each A Level description indicates complementary A Level choices for that particular subject and points to possible career choices. You are advised to apply early as demand for popular subjects is high.

FAQs

Who are A Levels for? Our A Levels are aimed at anyone who wants to go on to higher education, needs Level 3 qualifications for employment, or wants to study a subject in depth. How many A Levels do people study? You will take four subjects at AS level and then specialise in three subjects at A2 level. Is the fourth AS Level worth anything, if you don’t complete the full A Level? Yes. The AS is a distinct qualification, worth half an A Level and UCAS points. What are UCAS points? Universities and higher education institutions make offers based on UCAS points. A full A Level at grade A is worth 120 points, at AS it is worth 60 points, Grade B 80 points etc. What do I have to do to get an A*? In order to get an A*, you have to get an A overall for your A level, and score 90 per cent or more of the total A2 marks available on each unit. It is being awarded for full A levels only, not for AS levels or for individual units.

Entry Requirements

What extra things will I do alongside my A Levels? At the Centre for A Levels we try to develop all our full–time students into expert learners. This will vastly improve your applications for university or a career and fully equip you both for your A Level study and for what comes afterwards.

How do I apply to do A Levels at Craven College? You fill in the application form from this directory or apply online at www.craven–college.ac.uk you will then be invited to an interview to discuss your course choices, develop a provisional timetable and answer any questions.

What will I have to do to become an expert learner? You will research and write an extended project on a chosen subject, greatly enhancing research skills for your A Levels and future study. You also have the opportunity to develop English and Maths skills as they directly relate to your studies.

The course I wanted to do isn’t listed, what can I do? The range of subjects we offer is regularly updated. Please check with Central Admissions or the A Level Coordinator if a subject is not listed.

What is a Baccalaureate and can I do the qualification? The AQA Baccalaureate is an over-arching qualification which is nationally recognised, and desired by many of the top universities. Students who take the AQA Baccalaureate will study Citizenship AS alongside their 3 main A Levels, and will also engage in community participation as well as complete the Extended Project Qualification.

A Level Courses To study A Levels at Craven College you will require five GCSEs, A*-C. Equivalent level qualifications such as BTECs are accepted, but the five A*-Cs (or equivalents) must come from at least four subject areas. These must include English and Maths at A*-C. Alongside these general entry qualifications, each subject has its own subject–specific entry requirements which are included in this directory and may require an initial assessment.

Science and Maths For Sciences and Maths courses entry is subject to achieving 45 points on the Student Achievement Tracker which measures the progression in qualifications of 16–19 year olds based on their prior attainment. This is a national system that uses GCSE results to predict A Level achievement and will be discussed with you at interview. This allows us to predict the suitability of the course for you.

If you achieve Grade D and above at AS Level, you may continue onto the A2 Level programme with three A2 Level subjects. Full–time A Levels are normally allocated 4.5 hours per week unless there are small numbers, in which case the hours will be reduced accordingly, (however, this means that there will be a more beneficial tutor to student ratio). Classes with very low numbers will not run. If you have studied a subject at GCSE, you must have achieved at least grade C in order to study it at A Level; some individual subjects will require a grade B (see individual subject entry requirements). If you are changing centres to continue with A2 Level study at Craven College you must have achieved at least a grade C at AS Level. Proof of certification is required, and the subject tutor will need to confirm that our A2 programme is compatible with your AS qualification.

FAQs

What is an Apprenticeship? Businesses need employees who can combine technical knowledge with practical skills. Apprenticeships are a route by which you can begin a career in a chosen industry, learn practical skills and achieve nationally recognised qualifications. Apprenticeships are government backed training schemes aimed primarily at people aged between 1625, and now, because of their success are being extended to cover a wider age group. You will receive work-based training from your employer and will normally attend college one day a week. You will study towards a nationally recognised qualification which will demonstrate your practical competency and knowledge in your chosen area. Are there different levels of Apprenticeships? Yes, there are two different levels of Apprenticeships available; Apprenticeships and Advanced Apprenticeships. We will help you choose the one that’s right for you based on your experience and the job opportunities within your chosen area. There may be Higher Level Apprenticeships available in the near future which will be equivalent to a Level 4 Foundation Degree.

How long do Apprenticeships take? There is no set time to complete an Apprenticeship as they vary widely in content and size. The length of time taken will depend on your ability, prior experience and your employer’s requirements. An Apprenticeship will usually take anything from 12 to 24 months at Level 2 and a direct Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship could take up to three years, so a large degree of commitment on your part is required. Do I need to be employed when starting my Apprenticeship? If you already have a job with a small company, large employer or within your family business, you may already be eligible for an Apprenticeship, however, you may be looking for a job. We can help you to successfully locate the kind of employment you are looking for and then provide the training necessary for the Apprenticeship. How do I get started on an Apprenticeship? You’ll need to think carefully about the field of work in which you want to train. It’s a good idea to discuss this with your parents or careers adviser at school. Once you have an idea of what your interests are you can contact us for more information and a chat about opportunities available.

How much will I get paid? You will be guaranteed a minimum wage of £2.50 p/h with some employers paying more based on experience. What qualifications do I get when I’ve finished my Apprenticeship? You’ll get a package of qualifications when you finish your Apprenticeship – normally an Apprenticeship involves a Diploma/ Certificate and sometimes an NVQ. These qualifications demonstrate your knowledge and practical competency. You will also leave with Functional Skills or Key Skills at an appropriate level and some apprentices will gain a Personal Learning & Thinking Skills (PLTS) qualification. Any apprentice can choose additional courses or qualifications that complement their learning (subject to discussion with the college).

To study an Apprenticeship at Craven College you ideally will require three GCSEs grade A*-C. Alongside these general entry qualifications, each Apprenticeship may have its own specific entry requirements which are included on the following pages with each Apprenticeship. All Apprenticeships require an interview and experience will be taken into consideration. What sort of person is accepted on to an Apprenticeship? In addition to the above requirements, to do an Apprenticeship, you will need to be able to show that you can use your own initiative and have fully researched the career area you want to work in, and that you are the right person for the job.

You will need to be committed and willing to work. Working well on your own as well as in a team is another important requirement and you must be happy to work in both ways. As a student on an Apprenticeship you need to be realistic about the amount of work you may have to do and you should be prepared for further study. Additional Study With every Apprenticeship additional study includes Functional Skills in English and Maths Some Apprentices will also carry out Personal Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS) and also the Employee Rights and Responsibilities Work book. See www.craven-college.ac.uk for further details.

You will also need to be aware of your responsibilities to both yourself and the company who employs you.

Can I progress on to Further or Higher Education? Most Apprenticeships offer a potential progression from Level 2 to a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship. Advanced apprentices can progress onto a Level 4 industry qualification or higher education qualification such as a such as a HNC/D or a foundation degree.
