Shipley College Regional Leaders In Digital Innovation For Healthcare!

We're celebrating after a successful funding bid will allow our Health students to be trained in AI and robotics in healthcare! 

The Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP) for West and North Yorkshire sets out the skills priorities for our region, connecting businesses and education more closely, and Local Skills Improvement Funding (LSIF) was available to bid for to assist the digitalisation in the priority sectors. This fantastic opportunity for our students could in turn reduce pressure on frontline NHS services. 

Thanks to this funding we will be the lead in developing curriculum to meet digitalisation in the Health sector - meaning we will soon be able to offer access to such ground breaking resources as mixed reality (MR) robotic simulators, anatomage tables and an immersive environment!

Students will be trained on programmable and augmented reality robotics that simulate clinical diagnostics, childbirth, emergency medicine, minor surgeries and personal and geriatric care conditions.

The joint funding bid was in partnership with West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges and the West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce. We can't wait to see our students using this new technology!


“These cutting edge resources will allow us to upskill Bradford’s current medical professionals with the AI tech skills the modern NHS needs - whilst training our own students to become future-ready clinical and health care specialists."
