East Riding College aims to create a prestigious and unique Institute of Technology centre in the East Riding of Yorkshire as part of a wider collaborative project with Colleges, Universities and employers in the local region. The centre will deliver a high quality curricula in a bespoke facility to replicate employer requirements.

The College plans to recruit an additional 532 learners on Engineering specific programmes over the next 5 years, primarily targeted at levels 3, 4 and 5 but offering a progression route to those on level 1/2 programmes and individuals aiming to progress externally to levels 6/7.  The provision is demand led, and aligned to LEP sector priorities.

Yorkshire and the Humber is a significant area of the Northern Powerhouse, spanning an area of over 10,700 km², encompassing rural, coastal and areas of rich urban industry.

The area is a diverse socio-economic constitution, comprising districts with the poorest educational attainment in England, with qualification levels significantly below the national average. 33% of residents in Yorkshire/Humber achieve a L4 qualification or above, 5.4% below the national average. This widens further between Yorkshire/Humber and other urban areas for GCSE performance. 63% of Yorkshire/Humber school leavers achieved five A*-C grades compared with 70% in London. Without significant intervention to provide progression through to level 3 and higher levels, the regions performance will continue to widen.
