The Textile Coloration Certificate (TCC) developed by the SDC will enter into its fourth year with a new intake of students for both Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the course in March 2015. The course was primarily developed for the UK dyeing and printing industry to help educate new and existing members of dyehouse staff to take on more challenging roles.

SDC was delighted to be involved in the Bradford Textile Industry Challenge, which took place in early 2014.
SDC’s Technical Director Andrew Filarowski reports on the week.
The Bradford Textile Industry Challenge was held over the week 27th Jan to 3rd Feb 2014 and facilitated by the SPACE/Bradford Challenge and linked to a £750K European Commission Tempus funded project called INNOLAB. This also explains why a number of visiting students from Ukraine and Belarus were involved. The INNOLAB project is headed by Professor Christos Kalantaridis from the School of Management, University of Bradford, and aims to develop a network of five innovation laboratories (three in Ukraine and two in Belarus) that will be part of undergraduate curricula and regional innovation ecosystems. Students from the University of Bradford and Bradford College made up the teams who competed in the development of innovative ideas for the revival of the textile industry in Bradford.
