Shipley College Exhibition Building

Our relationship with local schools is very important to us. Shipley College won’t be the right choice for every school leaver in the region, but for many - we are the perfect choice.

This could be based on location and accessibility, the course areas we offer, the support we provide, or simply the unique nature of our college setup. 


Shipley College School Event

We work with many local schools to provide opportunities to best explain what we are, and why people might benefit from becoming a Shipley College student, so that school leavers, their parents and other supporters, can make an informed choice. 

We’re a small college with limited resources, but we will bend over backwards to accommodate requests from partner schools and help you to achieve adherence with Gatsby benchmark #7.

  • Bringing an exhibition stand, merchandise and enthusiastic staff to your in-school careers event/s
