In 2016, the Joint Venture agreement formally united Bradford College, Calderdale College, Kirklees College, Leeds College of Building, Leeds City College, Shipley College and Wakefield College who, together, originally formed West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges (WYCC) in 2002.
Managed by WYCC and working with the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), this collaborative approach responds to the region’s priority skills agenda using European Structural and Investment Funding (ESIF).
