Shipley College Course Photos Sept 2022 Litter

Shipley College is proud of the central part we play in the Saltaire community.

As custodians of some of the original Titus Salt buildings and renovating those buildings to prevent them falling into disrepair in the 1980s and 1990s, we now contribute to various schemes, charitable and social ventures in our village. 

Shipley College Community Enrichment Volunteering Litter Pick Saltaire Festival


Some of our students held a post-Saltaire Festival clean up by litter picking around Saltaire to help towards World Clean Up Day!

The students were linking to SDG 11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities, and SDG 12- Responsible Consumption and Production.

We’ve been working with Bradford Council again for the Great Bradford Clean-Up! Our staff and students cleaned 15 bags of rubbish from around our local area. We love our community and want to help make it a great place to live, work and study.

The Great Bradford Clean-Up links to a major theme for Earth Day 2023 - Global Clean-up, as well as three main SDGs - SDG 13 Climate Action, SDG 14 Life Below Water, and SDG 15 Life on Land. 

Shipley College Enrichment Charity First Give

MARCH 2023

Well done to our student Asim for doing a charity head shave to raise money for Cancer Support Yorkshire!

This was done as part of his group’s First Give project where students think about social issues in their area and learn about local charities that work to address them. After choosing a charity, the students support them through direct social action and then compete in a final event with the chance of winning a £1000 grant for their chosen charity.

Asim and the rest of the Health & Social Care students are raising money and awareness for @cancersupportyorkshire a small, independent charity providing practical & emotional support to individuals and families affected by cancer. This support includes advice on welfare rights, counselling services, well-being groups, and transports for hospital appointments.

Asim decided to do the charity head shave as it is a cause close to his heart after his mum sadly passed from pancreatic cancer when he was 11.

Shipley College Supported Internship Hirst Wood Regeneration Group Volunteering

MARCH 2023

We love when different departments work together! This time our Supported Interns, Horticulture Students and Bradford Works have collaborated to create these letters which were built out of old pallets. They’re designed to represent the Hirst Wood Regeneration Group, which is a community garden within Hirst wood that is run by volunteers. 



The college is continually investing in our original Victorian estate to maintain and modernise as appropriate. Recently this has included a £4.1million project via the Further Education Capital Transformation Fund to update wiring and heating across the buildings.
