About Scarborough TEC

Scarborough TEC will be a college which understands and meets the needs of students and employers.

Scarborough TEC will be a college which understands and meets the needs of students and employers. The college will improve services to students and increase their opportunity to study programmes that are directly related to current and future labour market needs thereby supporting the regions vocational and technical skills requirements and the local economy. Scarborough TEC is a new further education college in Scarborough, it is however, supported by a larger college group, which already provides further and higher education in the town through Yorkshire Coast College.

Yorkshire Coast College (YCC) is currently located on two sites in Scarborough and will be the basis for the new college which will start delivering programmes from September 2017. Scarborough TEC will build upon the outstanding success rates of the current YCC apprenticeship programmes, which have success rates significantly above the national average for colleges and apprenticeship providers in England.

Plans for Scarborough TEC include dedicated facilities for the teaching of: construction, engineering, catering and hospitality, health and social care, arts and the media, business, enterprise and ICT, leisure and tourism and many other technical and professional areas. There will also be a firm emphasis on the development of flexible, higher level skills, which have been identified as a key requirement for the wider economy going forwards. Scarborough TEC will also offer a wide range of apprenticeships and work-based training.

Scarborough TEC will provide a clear line of sight to work and careers and it is our aim is to put a relentless focus on quality in teaching and to do so in a high-quality environment so that we deliver an excellent outcome for every student, be that an apprenticeship, job, job promotion or place studying university level qualifications. We will also work collaboratively with other partners to deliver a range of higher education programmes that broaden the opportunities to study for a degree and other higher education qualifications.
