Staff at Bradford College are celebrating the title of best learning provider in West Yorkshire.
The College received the award at the first West Yorkshire Awards for apprenticeship, celebrating hardworking individuals and organizations involved in learning throughout the county.
With almost a million active educational institutions across England, apprenticeship schemes have quickly become an important path to future employment for thousands of school leavers. The awards recognize and reward both students and employers who have succeeded in West Yorkshire.
The announcement was made at a brilliant awards ceremony held at Bradford City McCall Suite Football Club. Individuals shortlisted, employers and education providers attended the awards dinner to celebrate the success of apprenticeships across the region.

Kelly McAllister, head of education and business development at Bradford College, said:
“We are thrilled that Bradford College has been recognized as the best provider of student learning at the West Yorkshire Apprenticeship Awards. It reflects the hard work and dedication of all of our staff who work tirelessly to teach, support and evaluate students at Bradford College and the workplace. Training is a critical training path for many industries, now more than ever, and we will continue to ensure that more people achieve useful and long careers. ”
Bradford College simultaneously supports up to 1,600 students with approximately 900 employers under the program in Bradford and the wider Leeds region. A dedicated team of employers is responsible for managing the accounts of all employer partners.
In 2019, the College of the Future Technologies was established to ensure that the curriculum meets the current and future needs of employers. Thus, six vocational centers have been formed with members of industry structures that now provide apprenticeship skills that are developed, meet the requirements of regional employers and the skills agenda for growth.
Bradford College faced stiff competition from Wakefield College, another finalist in the “Training Provider / Program of the Year” category. With the support of Occupational Awards Ltd (the awarding body and approved endpoint evaluation organization), the award was evaluated by an independent group of industry experts.
Awards judge and Yorkshire Post Business editor Mark Kashi said:
“I and my fellow judges considered this year’s entrants something remarkable. The caliber of innovation, tough affiliation, and leadership shown by individual students and their employers gave us all immense optimism about the future of the West Yorkshire economy.
«[…] Tutoring is the livelihood of business. They will shape the workforce of tomorrow and determine the agenda of the economy of the future. Training is a fantastic method of joining the workforce, which avoids the accumulation of debt and offers an experience of training in the workplace, which has no equal.
