Transfer of Harrogate College from the Hull College Group to Leeds City College (Luminate)

Harrogate College has been part of the Hull College Group since 2008 but on 1st August 2019 it will join the Leeds City College (LCC), one of the largest further education providers in the North.

The Hull College Group undertook a rigorous four-stage process to identify a suitable successor. Leeds City College, which includes Leeds City College, Keighley College, Leeds College of Music and the White Rose Academies Trust, was chosen as it offered further and higher education provision plus a wide range of vocational courses which will support and complement the education programmes at Harrogate College. The plans have been assessed by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and the Further Education (FE) Commissioner. Harrogate College has benefited from the expertise of Hull College Group over a number of years, and this new partnership will be a great opportunity for Harrogate College to develop further under the leadership of LCC. These benefits will arise from closer geographic proximity and the ability to share best practice across the group.
