Transforming Lives

Here at Hartlepool College of Further Education, we’ve been transforming lives since 1849! For over 170 years we have been ensuring adult learners of the town and surrounding areas have been given the right knowledge, skills and qualifications to progress and advance their careers.

In addition, we have equipped adults with the attitudes and behaviours employers look for and we know that what we do gives adult learners confidence to seek out and exploit the opportunities life presents to them.

Our adult and higher education programmes can help you upskill, reskill and gain new qualifications. Whether you are looking to enter or to progress in the workplace, or to gain a place at university; Hartlepool College aims to transform your life.

Lots of our courses are FREE at the point of use and this means that there are no upfront fees. That said, hard work is required!

Please take your time to look through our guide above or download a copy below as it contains information related to the courses on offer as well as other useful information.

You can apply for courses right now >> email us: or chat to our Student Support Team via #LiveChat here on our website.
