Getting to College


*You may be eligible for help with travel costs if:

  • You live OUTSIDE of Hartlepool (household income limit does apply).
  • You live over 1.5 miles from College and have a household income of less than £30,000 per year (including tax credits).

We will pay for your travel costs based on the cheapest (suitable means) of public transport. Depending on which travel company you use we will either issue you a termly bus pass or we will pay money into your bank to allow you to buy a weekly pass. Students need to be aged between 16 and 18 years old and studying on a part-time or full-time Further Education Programme. Students aged 19 and over or on apprenticeships should contact the Student Support Team for more information.



Whatever course you choose, you'll get the highest level of training from specialist tutors, benefiting from their knowledge and experience of working not just in education but also in industry.
