“Without it sounding cheesy, Shipley College is the best place I've ever worked. In terms of how it's managed, the friendly staff, the feel good atmosphere and the supportiveness. It's that feeling when you walk through the door that you’re in a place that's going to look after you and help you to develop. That’s not something I’ve had anywhere else.”
