What could be the next step at Hull College when your child leaves school?

Full-Time Study Programmes

A study programme is a personalised study programme designed to develop the all-round skills and qualities needed for university and employment. Personal development, employability skills, work experience, digital skills, industry specialised skills, support with next steps and future aspirations and English and maths at the appropriate level are all included within the study programme.

Courses range from entry-level through to Level 4 in many subjects and vocational areas, along with various other qualifications such as BTEC and NVQ.

Levels 2 and above generally require a pass in maths and English at grade 4 and above. However, don’t panic if this doesn’t happen because many subjects will have maths and English support and qualifications to do alongside.

Level 1 courses are a great way to start and test out many subject areas before making a commitment to a Level 2 course.

Vocational Subjects

  • Art, Design & Photography
  • Business
  • Catering & Hospitality
  • Childcare
  • Computing and Digital Technologies
  • Construction
  • Engineering
  • Foundation Studies from Entry Level for SEND Learners
  • Hair, Beauty & Make Up
  • Health & Social Care
  • Media Production, Film & Television
  • Performing Arts & Music
  • Public Services
  • Science
  • Sport
  • Travel & Tourism


Young people can work and gain a qualification at the same time, usually studying one day per week in college alongside four days at work. A variety of levels can be achieved in an apprenticeship, some as far as HND and HNC.

Not all apprenticeships require maths and English at a grade 4, so don’t panic if your son/daughter doesn’t get the grades they hoped for.

Apprenticeship roles in the local area can be found at the following link:

How do I support my child at College?

Attending College is very different for young people from when they were attending school. College is all about those next steps and preparing your son/daughter for adulthood and the world of work. Now is the time that they need to take ownership of their educational journey and their future aspirations. However, your support as parents/guardians is just as vital now as it was before.

So, what can you do to support your son/ daughter to be successful at college?

  • Have a copy of their timetable and support them with a new routine.
  • Attendance is essential to successfully completing and achieving their course. Ask to see their ProPortal which will show you all of their attendance and learner comments.
  • Attend Parent/Guardian Consultation Evenings.
  • Contact us directly if you have any concerns regarding your son/daughter using the contact details in this section.
What support is there for my child at Hull College?


The College has its own internal counselling service that all learners are entitled to use while studying with us. Referrals can be made by staff or learners themselves via the following email address:

Mentoring Support

Sometimes learners just need that extra person to speak to outside of their timetabled hours. A mentor is a friendly face from a member of staff who is linked to a learner and is able to meet them to chat to regarding any other support needed, how they are feeling, how their course is going.

SEND Support

The College has a range of specialist Learning Support Assistants that can support those learners who have special educational needs and/or disability (SEND). This support can range from meeting at transport points, group or individual support in classrooms, support at break or lunch times or mentoring support. Support can also be discreet.

Maths and English Support

The College has a number of specialised learning advisors that can help support those learners with their maths and English skills. There are also extra study hubs so that learners can access to help improve their skills within maths and English.

Careers Support

Impartial careers advisors are available for those learners who need support with their next steps and future aspirations. There are a number of events planned to support learners with their employability skills and achieving their hopes and dreams.

Student Finance Support

There are times when support is needed to help your son/daughter to be able to financially attend college. This support can be a bursary payment paid into their bank account, travel support, financial support to pay for equipment that might be needed or support with lunches.

Well-Being Room

The College invites a number of external agencies in their well-being room to support learners with a range of issues, ranging from mental and sexual health to support with domestic violence and drug and alcohol issues.

Sexual Abuse, Harassment and Violence

Ofsted was asked by the government to carry out a rapid review of sexual abuse in school sand colleges, after a significant amount of young people disclosed experiences on a website called ‘Everyone’s Invited’. As a college we wanted to ensure we support all of our learners to understand the context of sexual abuse, harassment and violence and have supportive mechanisms to be able to report any incidences. Learners have the opportunity to explore important themes and how to report and stay safe throughout the academic year, through induction, tutorials and themed weeks.
