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.

Local

employers

attended our Ahead

Partnership Event and

offered our Business and

Computing & IT students

one-to-one mock interviews

and provided feedback

and valuable advice.

Students

also started

preparing to apply

for university with the

Leeds Beckett UCAS

Personal Statement

Clinics.

A

representative

from JCT600 spoke

to students about the

business and offered work

experience to a number

of our Business and

Software students.

Art

& Design students

prepared and displayed

paper lanterns for the Cecil

Green Arts Annual Autumn parade

at Lister Park in Bradford. Members

of the Arts Collective assisted in

writing the assignment brief and

came in to College to demonstrate

how to make them. It was a

great example of community

collaboration in the

arts.

A Level 2 Health &

Social Care project group

helped raise funds for the Forget

Me Not Hospice in Huddersfield,

which supports children with life

shortening conditions and their families.

Lots of activities were organised such a

bake sales, raffles and curry kits, which

raised a grand total of £622.67. The

group presented the cheque to

hospice worker Alison Parker and

had a guided tour of the

hospice facilities.

Level 3 Software

students worked with

staff at MyMup to develop the

next generation of mental health

apps over the summer holidays.

They brainstormed how to improve

user experience, visual hierarchy,

visual on boarding, front end

elements, virtual reality games

and gamification to engage

people more.

Supported

Intern student Joseph

Midwood was shortlisted

for ‘Star Student Over 16’ in the

Telegraph & Argus Schools Awards.

He was a very well-deserved runner

up. Joe is doing extremely well, not

only making a huge difference to his

host employer but travelling to work

independently - something that

he has learnt this year. We are

incredibly proud of all he

has achieved.
