In June 2021, the college was awarded the Quality in Careers Standard Award by the Hull and East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
The Quality in Careers Standard is the national quality award for careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) in schools, colleges and work-based learning. It fully complies with the Department for Education’s statutory guidance.
By achieving this externally assessed standard, parents/guardians, employers and other stakeholders can be confident that the careers support provided by the college will help every student to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to take control of their futures.
We are very proud that our compliance with the eight Gatsby benchmarks for best careers provision has been recognised in this way and it remains our goal to deliver high-quality careers education, information to all our students.
