Here at Bradford College we have 30 years’ experience of delivering apprenticeships and working closely with employers within Bradford and the wider Leeds City Region, there are lots of reasons why Bradford College is the right choice for you. We have access to high quality training facilities, we work with approximately 700 employers and have highly qualified industry specialist staff.

You’ll mostly learn through ‘on-the-job’ training, which is exactly what it says on the tin. Working within your chosen trade, getting hands-on training from your employer, giving you skills to last a lifetime. Then there’s usually one day a week ‘off-the-job’ training in College.

Fuelling futures campaign – Women into Motorsport

As part of a project with Bradford Council, The Leap Marketing, Mission 44 – Bradford College will collaborate with local employers across the region to grow apprenticeship opportunities and promote the value of motorsports and STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) related programmes. The college will develop and offer 30 new apprenticeships, especially targeting women and BAME communities. Project ambassadors will also be employed to really push the message out to communities.

More details of the opportunities available to take part in this project will be available here soon.
