East Riding College plans to join TEC partnership

Graham Stuart MP visited East Riding College in July to discuss the exciting plans the College has recently announced. 

In early June it was revealed that the College’s Flemingate campus in Beverley is to be home to a new Institute of Technology (IoT), one of several college-based sites that will make up the Yorkshire and Humber Institute of Technology. 

Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness said, “The Institute of Technology will bring investment of around £10m into the region, providing much-needed high level skills training.  This is a massive training boost for our regional employers and I was pleased to visit the site at East Riding College and discuss the plans for the new technical training facility.”

The College also announced in July that in a review of its strategic plan, the board identified that the opportunity of joining a wider group will deliver many benefits to the region, and that the College therefore plans to join the TEC Partnership.

The TEC Partnership is a dynamic and innovative group of colleges and training providers, and is one of England’s largest providers of further and higher education.  In fact, Scarborough TEC is also a partner college in the Yorkshire and Humber IoT.

As part of the TEC Partnership the College will retain its identity and ability to deliver its mission – with the support and the opportunities that two successful education providers can create for learners and employers in the region.

At the College’s request, the review was supported by colleagues from the Department for Education’s Further Education Commissioner’s team and the Education and Skills Funding Agency. 

Mike Welsh, Principal and Chief Executive of East Riding College said, “I believe this is the right thing to do.  Joining such a strong and influential partnership as an equal partner gives us the means and resources to increase opportunities for our communities and realise our ambitions for the region.  

“East Riding College continues to perform extremely well, with overall achievement rates putting us in the top 15% of general further education colleges nationally, making us the number one general FE College based in Yorkshire.”

Graham Stuart, MP said, “We can be proud of having such a high performing provider of further and higher education in the East Riding and I welcome the opportunities that being part of a larger group will bring to the College.”

The process of joining the Partnership begins now and the College expect to finalise the merger towards the end of their new academic year after public consultation and consultation with their stakeholders.
