Meet Natalie…

In September 2020, an ambitious young mum visited Calderdale College to achieve her dream of completing a degree. Natalie didn’t just visit to explore her options, she came with the aim to change her life and provide for her young daughter.

With hard work, persistence and determination, along with support from the College’s University Centre, Natalie turned her dream into reality. She’s now working towards completing her degree in Business Management.

If you dream of studying at any level, from school or as part of your career development, get in touch and explore how we can help you.

At the heart of Brighouse

We recently launched a range of engineering courses at a new site in Brighouse, just off the M62. A key move that expanded the available training opportunities across West Yorkshire, we offers courses for both school leavers and adults.
