1. Keighley College is Back

    Leave a Comment

    The final piece in the rebrand of Keighley College is currently being put in place by partner company, Metalcraft UK. New exterior signage is being fitted to two of the three elevations with a third coming once faulty rendering is replaced. The illuminated stainless steel signage marks an important change in the way Keighley College has been working, with the campus now having a local management team who are focused on the needs of the local community.

    The college has a proud and long history dating back to the Keighley Mechanics Institute which opened in 1825, making it one of the oldest in country.

  6. Students are the Business

    Leave a Comment

    A small group of students have been learning the art of becoming entrepreneurs with the help of local business Small Office Supplies. Taking advantage of a vacant retail until on campus in the College Atrium – these young business people have opened their own store ‘Triangle’ starting with Mother’s Day promotions of cards and gifts. The store is open to the public and not limited to the students on site.

    With some help and training from Helen Avison of Small Office Supplies, they have been learning the art of how to become a retailer. Helen commented, “the enthusiasm these young people have shown has been terrific and it has been a pleasure to work with them. It is really encouraging to see that we have such talent in our local education facilities and we are looking forward to encouraging them further. This is a not for profit initiative and all about helping students understand the workings of business – albeit in a ‘Small’ way!”

    Chris Stott – Keighley College Head of Business Engagement added, “It is such an amazing opportunity for our students to get some real insight and experience of business as part of their work experience. This has been a really successful project for them to work on.”

    The students had workshop training at Small Office Supplies to learn about pricing, promotions, merchandising and general retail management. They then went on to create their own brand logo, signs and posters. The ‘Triangle’ store will be offering stationery supplies for the students on an on-going basis, plus developing promotions for the Easter period and Father’s Day.
