Kirklees College

Kirklees College is one of the largest colleges in Yorkshire and offers a vast range of courses, Apprenticeships and study options. The college has eight training centres including specialist Engineering and Process Manufacturing centres in Huddersfield.

In 2012, a project group, involving manufacturing businesses Nufarm UK Limited, Syngenta, Kirklees College and YCF, developed a process manufacturing training centre for the chemical, pharmaceutical and food manufacturing industries in the Leeds City Region and beyond, the Process Manufacturing Centre (PMC). Following a successful bid from the Leeds City Region Growth Fund, the centre was built and opened in 2016.

The PMC is a state-of-the-art process manufacturing training facility, providing a fully operational process manufacturing batch plant supported by a control room with a state-of-the-art control system. The adjoining classrooms, analytical laboratory, IT and learning resource facilities provide ‘on the job’ training, which is supported by the adjacent facilities of the college’s highly acclaimed Engineering Centre.

This project supports Apprenticeship routes in:

  • food and drink process/operation technicians
  • food and drink engineering maintenance technicians
  • pharmaceutical - science manufacturing techniques

The college is working in close partnership with a number of businesses in the food and drink industry including Nestle.
