The Bata Organisation also had College facilities where young men were trained in the art of Shoe Making. These young men came from all over the Country and were trained in either the Leather or Rubber side of the industry, or Administration. Once again the sporting facilities were important and many of these young men went on to play for the Companies first team in various sports.
Were you a College boy? If so we would love to record your memories onto our website.
Clive Richardson, College Boy on the Leather Course from 1960 - 1962 is looking to get in touch with others who were educated within the Bata System. He can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
