Selby College, alongside 11 other education providers across the Humber, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire, are set to receive a multimillion-pound boost as part of the successful TEC Partnership-led bid to join the Skills Accelerator Programme.
The College has been granted the Strategic Development Fund (SDF) as part of the government’s pilot programme, which aims to respond to local priorities for skills and innovation.
This will support the development of courses that provide the skills and education needed for future industries, particularly the use of new fuel technology, green energy, robotics, artificial intelligence and the latest electric vehicle maintenance.
The TEC Partnership, which comprises Grimsby Institute, Scarborough TEC, East Riding College and Modal Training, is one of just 12 organisations selected to lead the pilot across the country. Also part of the collaboration is Selby College, the University of Hull, Bishop Burton, North Lindsey College (part of DN Colleges Group), Franklin College, John Leggott College, Wilberforce Sixth Form College and Hull College.
