Centre of Excellence for Business

Our fully equipped CofE4B onsite at Shipley College provides quality education and training opportunities for Level 3 Business, Media and IT students, to prepare you to progress in to work or university.

The centre works closely with a board of local employers who contribute to your student experience. These employers include Morrisons, Yorkshire Water, Incommunities, Adviser Plus, Computershare, Bradford Council and the University of Bradford.

They also give you work experience opportunities and real life project scenarios to help you prepare for your next step. Employers also provide ‘master classes’, mentoring opportunities and site visits.

All this will help you towards developing an ‘Unstoppable CV’!

We also have strong links with our partner schools across the Bradford district including Titus Salt School and Carlton Bolling College.

Software Development & Programming Students Project

Software Development & Programming students, led by tutor Steve Mullarkey, are building a life sized “InMoov” robot, named Titus by students. This project is an exciting opportunity for students to learn about the latest developments in the industry. Take a look at our InMoov video below.
