Selby College at
I am pleased to
announce to all staff and students that from September this year, Selby College
will be taking over responsibility for the delivery of Sixth Form courses at
The college has a
long history associated with providing learning services in Goole and the
surrounding area, with nearly forty percent of students regularly travelling
from the East Riding of Yorkshire to access our superb teaching, learner
support and campus facilities.
This new partnership
will see existing Goole Academy staff working alongside Selby College teaching
and support staff colleagues to provide, initially, two BTEC Level 3 Diploma
courses in Health and Social Care and Sport Development, Coaching and Fitness
to existing Year 12 and current Year 11 learners studying at Goole Academy.
Year 12s currently
studying Engineering, will take their final year at Selby College, taking
advantage of the state-of-the-art facilities we can provide and links with key
students and parents, staff and other stakeholders, have also been informed of this
exciting new partnership and press releases have been sent to the local
media.A special Information Evening is
also to take place on 8th February at 5.30pm-7.00pm at Goole Academy
for parents of students.
It goes without
saying that this new partnership provides a great opportunity for both
organisations, allowing students to access our teaching and learner support,
our fabulous facilities and receive the same levels of pastoral care that
ensures, just like those students attending our campus, they succeed in the
course subjects and progress to higher level education choices, training
programmes or into work.
