1st December 2017

Throughout 2017, The Phil White Culture Bus has visited many different locations, broadcasting live and helping to spread the message of Hull’s City of Culture status to the cities wider regions.

And on 30 November, the BBC chose Goole College as one of these sites to broadcast their live show on BBC Radio Humberside.

The show gave the college an incredible platform to highlight the excellent opportunities available in Goole, and Phil White spoke to lots of students to hear their stories and found out exactly what goes on.

As well as interviews with students, two City of Culture volunteers took part in a Joinery challenge in the workshop with tutor Rick Gilroy, and Head of School Julie Duffy gave an overview of the curriculum on offer.

Tutor Mick Grundy talked about the excellent projects the welding students have been involved with, and Head of 14-16 Anne Handley was interviewed about the excellent links to the local businesses which Goole College enjoys.

The show was closed by Principal Caron Wright who talked about the work the college does to provide students with the skills needed to enter the workplace, the future plans for the college and thanked all of the students and staff for their endless hard work.

It was a great afternoon and an excellent way to promote Goole College and everything the college has to offer.

You can listen to the full show on the BBC Radio Humberside website (link expires on 29/12/17)
