Bridge College - A special FE college

Bridge College is a non-residential specialist FE college. We offer specialist education for students aged 16 to 25 with learning difficulties, disabilities, complex health needs and autism.  

We’re here to give students a voice in their future and get them ready for a happy, fulfilled adulthood. Our flexible curriculum means students can make choices about their education and our support gives them the tools to succeed. We develop individual learning plans shaped to suit each student’s interests, needs and aspirations so everyone leaves with the skills and self-confidence for their future. 

From day one, every student has a multiskilled team around them, from tutors and therapists to nurses, support staff and assistive tech. We can even provide specialist staff training to tailor our expertise right down to the individual. 

Everything we do is underpinned by the preparing for adulthood framework, helping students work towards their life ambitions. Based in central Manchester, we prepare our students for all aspects of adulthood, from future work and community life to independent and healthy living.
