Bradford Manufacturing Weeks

Bradford Manufacturing Weeks brings manufacturers, schools  young people together through tours, work experience, seminars, exhibitions and learning events held at manufacturer premises and key locations across the district.

Endorsed by Bradford Council, Bradford Economic Partnership, and Bradford University, this not-for-profit event relies on the generosity of key sponsors and supporters.

Please join us, support us and help us to shape the future of Bradford’s manufacturing industry and open the door of opportunity for our district’s young people.

Administered by Bradford Chamber of Commerce and the Bradford & Airedale Manufacturing Alliance for the past six years, Bradford Manufacturing Weeks has connected 15,000 students in the region to the manufacturing sector, helping to launch many a career in the sector.

Mark Cowgill, president of Bradford Chamber of Commerce, said: “Bradford has one of the finest manufacturing sectors in the country and Bradford Manufacturing Weeks has done so much good work in giving it new blood.

“Manufacturing can give you a well-paid, secure and incredibly interesting career that can take your work across the planet. The webinar could be the first step in that journey.”

Sponsors for 2023 were Bradford Council, the University of Bradford, Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership, Natwest, Azets and the University of Bradford.
