SCHOOL LIAISON

Harrogate College School Liaison Team work in partnership with schools, colleges and education provisions throughout Yorkshire to provide a variety of information and activities for students to discover their post-16 options. We would like to offer schools within the local authority area of the college our Careers Education, Advice and Guidance activities. Whether your school is hosting a careers convention, parents evening, drop-in session or assembly, we would like to support you.

We can provide information on each of our subject areas, along with updates on the range of courses, apprenticeships and the choice of career options available to prospective students. All our events and activities can be tailored to meet your students’ needs. Additional elements covered include, student finance, how to apply to Harrogate College and student life.

Following our last OFSTED inspection in February 2018, we are proud to announce that the college was awarded a well-deserved ‘Good with Outstanding Features’ grade. Areas awarded outstanding include personal development, behaviour and welfare, full-time provision for 14- to 16-year-olds and provision for learners with high needs. Our superb staff worked tirelessly to achieve this grade and will continue to do so to be fully outstanding!
