Our fully equipped Centre of Excellence on site at Shipley College combines quality education and training opportunities to prepare you for work or university. The centre works closely with its main partner, Titus Salt school.
The ICE works with a board of local employers who can enhance your learning experience. These include Adviser Plus, Computershare, Bradford Council and the University of Bradford.
The employers provide work experience opportunities and real life project scenarios to help prepare you for your next step. They also deliver ‘master classes’, mentoring and site visits. All this will help you towards delivering an ‘unstoppable CV’!
Software Development & Programming students, led by tutor Steve Mullarkey, have been 3D printing, building and programming 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. This year they are 3D printing Titus’ legs and will be programming him to answer questions and greet people he recognises.
Are you a local business or organisation who would like to get involved in the Centre of Excellence for Business? Would you like to offer work placements to help prepare young people for the world of work?
