Career College North East (CCNE) is the UK’s first Career College to specialise in Advanced Manufacturing, Engineering and Computer Science and has been developed to tackle a significant skills shortage in the region as well as a predicted jobs boost with the creation of the International Advanced Manufacturing Park near Nissan
Career Colleges have been proposed by the Career Colleges Trust to take advantage of the Government’s decision to allow Further Education Colleges to recruit at 14 and will;
- Increase the range and choice of opportunities open to 14–19 year olds
- Specialise in subjects linked directly to sectors with exceptional job prospects
- Give young people a head start by developing the skills, knowledge and experience most prized by employers.
- Provide accelerated vocationally-focused programmes of study alongside core academic work to national curriculum standards
- Provide clear progression routes into higher education, apprenticeships, further education and work
