New partnership to boost higher education

New partnership to boost higher education

Redcar & Cleveland College has teamed up with Teesside University, along with Darlington College, Hartlepool College of Further Education and Stockton Riverside College to form a newly launched Teesside University College Partnership.

The TUCP has a shared vision to provide a high quality higher education learning environment, offering excellent courses taught by committed and passionate staff, at whichever campus they study.

The partnership will be able to respond to the economic and educational needs of the area through shared thinking and collaborations with businesses. This will mean the TUCP can provide people across the Tees Valley with even wider access to higher education courses.

The TUCP was officially launched this week with a celebration event at the University, where Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen offered his backing to the partnership. He said: “By prioritising education and skills now, we can secure jobs and prosperity in the future.”

“As such, we relish the opportunity to further enhance our longstanding partnership with Teesside University.  The partnership provides high quality opportunities that are accessible, demand-led and right on the doorstep of our communities, not only meeting the needs of students but also serving the specific requirements of the area and its businesses.”

Ed Heatley, Redcar & Cleveland College’s Acting Principal, added: “Redcar & Cleveland College has shared a successful partnership with Teesside University for its higher education provision since 1993. This partnership provides great opportunities for communities in and around Redcar and Cleveland to further develop their careers and skills. It also offers a direct progression opportunity for our learners.

“By working closely with local businesses and Teesside University, together we are able to develop courses that service the needs of our area, its businesses and the economic demands of both Redcar and Cleveland and the wider Tees Valley. We are committed to the continued development of this partnership in meeting the needs of our learners, communities and businesses.”
