About us

We are delighted that you are considering joining our family at Goole College.

The College has developed greatly in recent years to meet the needs of our local economy, providing you with the best facilities and equipment to support your achievement, such as our popular new Carpentry and Joinery workshop, which is entering its second year with an expanded offer, or our state of the art Welding Workshop, or Business and Logistics Centre which continues to buzz with activity.

This year we’re excited to have developed our offer of degree level courses and we’re seeing an expansion in our provision of Health & Care study programmes that could see you training in a range of settings, from auxiliary nursing or social care to childcare or clinical support work, and we’d love you to join us in developing the local healthcare workforce of the future in partnership with North Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Trust.

We can offer you a friendly, supportive and inclusive environment in which to study and a close knit community of students and staff to lift you up and celebrate your success.

All of this, alongside our partnerships with prominent local employers such as the NHS, BMW, Drax, Croda and Hobson and Porter, forms the blueprints of career success for all our students.

But don’t take my word for it. Visit our award winning* website for further information and come along to one of our open events to speak to our tutors and experience first-hand everything we have to offer.

We look forward to welcoming you to the family.

Goole College Principal

  • What Makes Us Different

    Why choose Goole College?

    87%* of our students progress to either further study or employment within 6 months of completing their programme.

    Employer links
    The College has links with a wide range of employers in many industries. This means you have the opportunity to build up a network of contacts and learn from the experts at employer events and by working on live projects. National and global employers such as Croda, BMW, Drax, The Press Association and Tesco Distribution are part of the Goole College Consultative Group and meet on a regular basis to advise the Principal on the qualifications that these industries will need in the future. This enables us to ensure that we are providing the skills and knowledge to our students which will assist them in obtaining a job in the future.

    Industry facilities preparing students for work
    Our training facilities include hair and beauty salons, IT suites and an engineering workshop which specialises in fabrication and welding. A new addition for the future is a number of virtual fabrication and welding machines which will provide further opportunities for future and existing engineers to increase their skills. Goole College is part of the Hull College Group which means that students are also able to access further resources including vocationally trained staff at Hull and Harrogate Colleges.

  • Applying for Courses

    What can I study?

    Education is all about progression to higher level study or employment. Use the table opposite to work out which level you are currently working at, or which level you expect to be at when you start college in September.

    It’s really straightforward…


    If your GCSEs are, or will be, at grade C and above or if you have a First/Level 2 Diploma or NVQ then you currently sit at Level

    2. Once you know where you are then you can work out where you’re going. You will then see the qualifications you need to meet the entry requirements.

    On the table, you will see the general entry requirements for the courses we offer. Please see subject areas in this prospectus for any requirements specifiÂc to individual courses - these can be discussed at your interview or with one of our tutors during one of our many open events.

    For every course, students must meet the following requirements:

    • Have motivation and clear enthusiasm for the subject

    • Have a satisfactory reference

    • Attend a successful interview

    • Complete successful initial assessment tests

    Mature students, above 19 years of age, with relevant experience and/or qualifications are welcomed to apply and will be considered individually.

    All students enrolling with us will have the opportunity to study and re-sit GCSEs alongside their course, where necessary, with our English and Maths team. Students for whom English is a second language will need to hold the appropriate level of ESOL qualification before starting on their chosen course.

    All vocational and Apprenticeship students will be expected to work towards GCSEs A-C or Functional Skills Level 2 in Maths or English if they do not already hold this level of qualification. Some Apprenticeship Frameworks also include Functional Skills ICT.

  • Features

    Salon GC

    At Salon Goole College we offer an exceptional training environment for the Hair and Beauty therapists of the future. Our fully equipped industry standard salon offers a range of Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy services and treatments to the public, allowing our students to work with real clients from the offset of their training. Students are also able to take advantage of the services themselves and have access to a great variety of treatments at excellent value prices, so why not treat yourself to a manicure or a new haircut whilst you’re here? The salon also has its very own shop, with products from Barry M, Matrix and Hara as well as nail art and hairdressing supplies available with great savings from what you’ll find on the high street.

    Engineering Workshop

    The Engineering workshops model a working environment and have a range of equipment to ensure that students are able to develop high quality skills in fabrication and welding. There is predicted to be a shortage of skills in this area nationally, regionally and locally. Welding processes taught in the workshops include: Manual Metal Arc Welding, Tungsten Arc Gas Shielded Welding (TIG/TAG), Metal Arc Gas Shielded Welding (MIG/MAG). New for 13/14 will be the Virtual Welding equipment which will allow students to further enhance their welding and fabrication skills in the classroom using state of the art virtual welding programmes and associated equipment.

    IT Suites

    Goole College has an advanced college network system with over four IT suites available, providing access to the best facilities and teaching so that our students achieve their goals.
