I'm an employer

What we do

East Riding College provides training for hundreds of businesses and other organisations in the East Riding and Hull, and further afield. We work with major employers such as Cranswick PLC, the NHS and the University of Hull.

Flexible and responsive

We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver training which fits around your business without interfering with your working patterns. Workforce development from East Riding College isn't about spending a day away from work - we'll come to your workplace and put on sessions at times to suit you.

Choosing the right programme...at the right price

Our business advisers use their in-depth knowledge of our courses and the range of government subsidies available to plan a programme of training which will help you achieve your goals at a price you can afford. They'll carry out an organisational needs analysis to find out which areas of development will benefit you most and will support you throughout the training process. Don't forget to ask about our deals for bulk training packages.

To find out more or to speak to one of our business advisers, call 0845 120 0037 and ask for our business development team or email: business.development@eastridingcollege.ac.uk

Career Progression Support

Expert Guidance Officers are available at each campus; they can provide your employees and apprentices with impartial information, advice and guidance on a wide range of matters including:

  • The broad range of courses which the College is able to offer
  • Career and progression planning
  • UCAS applications for higher education

 To access a guidance officer, appointments need to be made at Reception or by calling 0345 120 0044.

The College’s tutors will also advise on the career opportunities available in a particular vocational area, the courses available and the progression opportunities in that particular area. They can tell you more about what the course is like, what kind of things students learn, how the course is organised, how students will be assessed and what previous students have gone on to do. 

The College’s learner services team is accredited to the Quality in Careers Standard and the Matrix Standard for information, advice and guidance.
