BRADFORD College representatives were delighted to attend the recent Bradford Bulls end-of-season awards dinner at Odsal stadium as a club partner.

The College presented the Players’ Player of the Year Award to 23-year-old prop Ebon Scurr, as voted for by the Bulls squad. The accolade was just one of many awards handed out at the glittering event after a three-course dinner and live auction.

Bradford College staff joined the celebration alongside Bulls players and staff, club volunteers and supporters, and some rugby-league legends to boot.

The end-of-season awards marked the end of another successful term of working together. Bradford College’s renewed educational partnership agreement will boost the Bulls Foundation Community Outreach team by sharing course information, community visits, and advice and guidance training.

In return, the Bulls are the official employer partner for sports and fitness programmes at Bradford College, supporting student events, sharing knowledge and expertise through masterclasses, and providing valuable work experience for sports coaching, business and event management students.

Furkan Uddin, Head of Department for Professional Services at Bradford College, said: “Bradford Bulls is a key partner for Bradford College. As part of our collaboration with the Bulls, we will be scheduling a series of fascinating masterclasses on strength and conditioning and sports event management, so our students can learn first-hand from top athletes and industry professionals.”

Bradford College has a long-standing relationship with Bradford Bulls. Fashion and Textiles students even restored the much-loved Bullboy mascot which returned triumphantly to the pitch, together with the newly launched ‘Bull Girl’.

Working with local partners like Bradford Bulls, the College continues to be a leading training provider of sports and fitness courses. Courses from entry level to Level 3 cover everything from sports coaching and active leisure through to exercise science and sports massage therapy.

Find out more about sports and fitness courses at the next Bradford College open day on Saturday, November 11, 10am- 3pm, at the Great Horton Road campus. Book your place via the Bradford College website.

A STUNNING new exhibition at Bradford College pays homage to a brilliant northern artist.

Open at the Bradford School of Art Dye House Gallery, Janet Samson’s retrospective is a showcase of her life's work (1940-2019).

Spanning sketches, paintings, and prints across six decades, the collection offers an intimate look at the evolution of a creative spirit. Janet found inspiration roaming cityscapes and capturing snippets of life. Back in her studio, sketches morphed into bold, colourful compositions brimming with spontaneous creativity.

Janet's husband Peter said: “With its rich legacy of nurturing artistic talent, the Dye House Gallery feels like the perfect home for celebrating Janet's remarkable career. Janet would be delighted and proud to have her work exhibited in such a beautiful space.”

The Janet Samson Retrospective Exhibition is open to the public in the Bradford School of Art Lister Building on weekdays until December 1, 10am - 4pm. For more information about what’s on at the Bradford School of Art visit the events section of Bradford College website.
