East Riding College to join TEC Partnership

18th Jul

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. An Ofsted Outstanding provider, the partnership comprises the Grimsby Institute, University Centre Grimsby, Scarborough TEC, Skegness TEC, the Academy Grimsby, Career 6, Modal Training and NET.
As part of the TEC Partnership, East Riding College will retain its identity and ability to deliver its mission, with the additional support and opportunities that being part of a much larger group can create. The College already works with the TEC Partnership as part of the Yorkshire and Humber Institute of Technology, one of 12 IOTs across the country designed to increase higher-level technical skills for employers. 
Mike Welsh, principal and chief executive of East Riding College, said, “Joining such a strong and influential group as an equal partner gives us the means and resources to increase opportunities for our employers and apprenticeship partners. We have ambitious plans to stimulate the regional economy through driving skills development and supporting employers in developing a highly skilled and productive workforce.”
Gill Alton (left), chief executive officer of the TEC Partnership, said, “This opportunity will ensure the wider region benefits from a long-term strategy to ensure that our curriculum delivers what the regional economy needs.”
The college expects to finalise the merger towards the end of the new academic year, after a public consultation and consultation with its stakeholders, including key employer partners.
