This is a Pathways (SEND) course for students who may find transitioning to college challenging, for a variety of reasons. This programme is aimed at students who are working at Pre-entry Level to Entry Level 2.

Additional costs

As a City of Bristol College student, you may incur additional costs to attend your course. For example, it is likely you may need to pay for travel and stationery. 

Many courses offer learning opportunities that you may need to pay for. This may include things like visits within the community, or ingredients for a catering lesson. We will let you know in advance if there will be additional costs.

If you are on a limited income, you may be able to receive help from our Learner Support Funding Bursary.

To keep everyone safe, we’ve reduced the number of people in our buildings at one time. Most of our courses include sessions taught at the college supported by online learning.
