  • Bradford Crown Court’s SPRUCE (Student Pre-University Court Exposure) course began in 2015 within two years the course’s popularity meant that neither the building nor the organisers were sufficient for the course.

    Beginning in 2017, the Xperience team worked tirelessly to enable a much-expanded course to take place. Arranging for the course to be held in the Council Chamber at City Hall with space, access to technology and the use of the old Crown Court, meant that students would be comfortable at all times. Behind the scenes, Xperience ensured that every school and college in the area would be aware of this course for Year 12 students and that students attending would have this recognised, by the issuing of certificates and since 2023, digital badges.

    SPRUCE would have possibly failed had it not been for the immense support we receive from Xperience. Instead, it is a thriving course attracting nearly 100 students and it is respected by those in the legal and educational systems and envied (and now emulated) by other cities.
