Mother and daughter have become an inspiration to others after telling of how they left behind their jobs as a cleaner and barmaid to become a doctor and a scientist. Allison and Gabrielle Corbett are now both successful career women despite coming out of their schools without the greatest of grades. But after seeing her mum head back into the classroom at Hartlepool College of Further Education following a succession of low paid jobs, Gabrielle also returned to her studies and is now a qualified science teacher.

College Life Prospectus

Don’t know where to start?
Let us help you. Our College Life magazine lists a wide variety of courses that we have on offer. These are courses that are predominantly targeted at adults, they are often part-time in nature and delivered either on an evening or flexible to tackle some of the barriers adults face to education. Our Higher Education prospectus is just that, a guide to the courses we deliver at higher education levels 4 – 7. We split these courses by industry area so it is easier to see what is on offer for the career path of your choice.
