Hartlepool College of Further Education is an exceptional college and we can trace our history back to 1849 – over 170 years. In this time the College has built up a reputation as one of the country’s leading providers of vocational and technical education and this has afforded us the opportunity to deliver our mission – Excellence in further and higher education to transform students’ lives. Staff are aware of the College’s history and that is incumbent on us, as the current custodians of the College, to do all we can to ensure the foundations are laid for the next 170 years – and beyond.
Times are exciting for the College with opportunities for further growth and development via the recent Further Education White Paper, announcements made in the March 2021 Budget, and as the economy rebounds from the impact of coronavirus. We moved into our current premises in 2011 and since this time investment has been made to ensure the facilities remain exceptional. This environment, which is high on aspiration and a source of civic pride, helps us drive the high expectations we have of all our students. High expectations and standards of behaviour are also expected of all staff as the College embraces a culture of improvement, growth and development.
The College’s curriculum is closely linked to the strategic economic priorities of the Tees Valley Combined Authority and North East Local Enterprise Partnership. We are proud of the work we do and feedback from students and employers is both a source of satisfaction and growth potential.
