Many of you will know Sussex Coast College Hastings and Sussex Downs College merged earlier this year to create the East Sussex College Group, incorporating campuses in Hastings, Eastbourne, Lewes and Newhaven.
The drive behind the merger was that East Sussex needs a strong and resilient champion of and investor in East Sussex education and skills, enabling:
- The county’s young people to achieve better A levels and technical qualifications
- A county-wide apprenticeship and adult community learning offer
- A higher-skilled East Sussex workforce
Amongst a range of early ambitions was a high profile drive to improve post 16 standards and a pledge to reach out across the county, including to work with East Sussex employers, large and small, to build a bespoke professional and technical offer with their needs at its core.
Well they achieved the merger and have a shiny new logo but what have they achieved towards their ambitions so far; what will this mean for local businesses and just how will they engage with East Sussex employers?
To tell us Dan Shelley, Executive Director of Strategic Partnerships and Engagement, will be along to cover these and many more points.
