ycsauce

We are a small, friendly college based in beautiful buildings in Saltaire Village, offering great full-time and part-time courses, apprenticeships and traineeships.

Students

pitch for funding for

a local charity

Students took part in the First Give project which

encourages young people to identify social issues in

their area and engage with charities to address them.

Teams carried out research to identify local charities

they felt would benefit from a £1000 funding boost and

pitched to a panel of judges.

The judges chose the Down Syndrome Training &

Support Service after Level 3 Creative Media students

created posters, organised raffles and made two

compelling videos to raise awareness. They

shared and promoted the videos using the

hashtag #dontscreenusout. Well done

to the winning Media team.

Shipley College win EFCA

Pan-Disability Football Final

Students from across the country battled it out to

become national champions in the English College’s

Football Association Pan Disability Finals in Staffordshire.

The Shipley College team, who are Foundation Level students,

faced Walsall College in the final – a team who had remained

unbeaten in all of the qualifiers – but our students raced in to

a 4-2 lead by half time. The final whistle was met with wild

celebrations!

Damian Butters from Essential Skills commented that

‘“The students did the college proud and they gave

everything! To see their faces at the final whistle will live

long in my memory.”

Well done to our students and all the

staff who have supported them in

their exciting journey.

Robbie

Hunter-Paul visits CE:B

Former professional Bradford Bulls rugby

player turned sports pundit & successful Marketing

company owner visited CE:B students in April. Robbie

spoke about growing up in New Zealand, being signed to

Bradford Bulls at 18, as well as challenges he has faced during

his professional and personal life. He talked about the need for

hard work and determination, and the importance of never giving

up no matter how hard you find things.

Robbie also mentioned after he retired from rugby, he attended

university and gained a degree in Marketing & Public Relations

before launching his own, now successful, company Xtra Mile

Marketing. Students enjoyed his inspirational talk, with one

saying “He made me feel like I could start my own business.

I know now it will take a lot of hard work, but Robbie made

me realise it’s worth all the hard work and dedication.”
