Northern future talent of 2017
The 23 August 2017 saw the BPIF host a graduation ceremony for the second cohort of Level 4/5 Management Programme learners at St Bride Foundation, London. The fully gowned learners, their proud employers and guests, plus key supporters within the printing industry came together to celebrate each learner's achievements.
BPIF CEO Charles Jarrold, opened the ceremony congratulating all the learner's on their efforts.

The UK printing industry has rebounded from a lacklustre Q2 to match the positive Q3 forecast, as far as output volumes are concerned - upbeat expectations for Q4 reveal optimism, at least in the short-term future.
A ‘work in progress’ exhibition at the SPACE gallery in Mare Street, Hackney will show headway on an ongoing history of the print trade in east London, as well as inviting former-print workers along for a festive get together.
