Shipley College provides high quality, inspirational education and training that meets the ambitions of individuals, businesses and communities. We have an Adult Success rate of 89% versus the National College Average of 86%. Every new skill learnt is an advantage at work and at home. We all love learning at Shipley College and we want our passion for gaining new skills to spread throughout the entire community. We know many people leave learning behind after school and find the thought of going back intimidating. Trust us - you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you discover and we will support you throughout your time here.” Our part-time courses run during the day, throughout the evenings and on weekends as we know that you have busy lives. For many courses there are start dates throughout the year, so if you miss one, you’ll soon get another opportunity to enrol. This guide has been designed to provide you with some information to help you find the right course. If you have any questions or if there is any more information you would like, please feel free to contact us or come along to one of our Open Days. Due to the popularity of some courses, we do advise that you enrol as soon as you know which course(s) you would like to do, to avoid disappointment. We look forward to meeting you and helping you to achieve your ambitions! Principal, Nav Chohan, BSc (Hons); MSc; PGCE 2
