It is not just A Level students who are celebrating today as Goole College students have also been receiving their BTEC results across the region.

BTECs are vocational and career-based qualifications, designed to accommodate the needs of employers and equip students with the practical knowledge and skills to prepare for their chosen career.

More universities than ever before are also choosing BTEC-qualified candidates for their academic and practical knowledge and skills.

Today, students, who are graded using a Pass, Merit, Distinction and Distinction* scale, have been receiving the results of their hard work in courses such as Business, Carpentry & Joinery, Engineering, Health Care and Hairdressing.

Michelle Swithenbank, Hull College Group Chief Executive Officer said:  “We are delighted to have maintained such a high success rate – it is testament to the hard work put in by both students and tutors. Congratulations to all of you – we look forward to welcoming back students who are progressing their studies with us, as well as supporting those students who have secured jobs to continue their work-based learning.”

“Many students find that the more academic route of A-Levels is not the most suitable for their career path and here at Goole College we offer a huge range of vocational BTEC, NVQ and Diploma programmes, ensuring your further education gives you the skills and knowledge to begin your career in the industry of your choice.”

“We are particularly pleased that a number of students receiving their results today plan to stay with us to study at a Degree level.”

Caron Wright, Principal of Goole College said, ““We are exceptionally proud of all our students and their achievements.”

Our students have high aspirations and have worked incredibly hard. They have grown in confidence and fulfilled their goals with support from an excellent team of staff.   We would like to wish them every success in the future and in their chosen careers.”

“This year has seen the introduction of Higher Education at Goole College, and we are proud to be able to provide this progression opportunity to our students. In addition, there are a number of Full Fee Waiver Scholarships available for students enrolling on Young Children’s Development & Learning programmes to apply for in September.”

Hull College Group, which Goole College is a major element of, is at the forefront of vocational education for school leavers in the area and takes pride in its industry-specialist facilities as well as unrivalled relationships and partnerships with local employers, which prepares students for the world of work.
