The Group has developed over the last few years as a result of the expansion of Bradford College and the changes in the wider economy, employment and policy environment. We now bring together a number of operating companies, all committed to the provision of learning, teaching and employment that helps improve lives and build the economy. The members of the Group are:

  • Bradford College: successfully providing Further and Higher Education to more than 20,000 students, across a wide variety of courses.
