Details about Hartlepool College Of Further Education

Hartlepool College of Further Education is a non-denominational mixed further education college based in Hartlepool, providing courses to students aged 16 and over. The College has existed in several forms since 1897, but occupied its now familiar location on Stockton Street in the early 1960s. It was officially opened in April 1969 by the Rt. Honorable E. Short, M.P., Secretary of State for Education and Science. In 2006 plans were made to replace the College building with a modern, purpose built campus with dedicated specialist areas in Engineering, Aerospace, Automotive, Environmental Technologies, Construction, Hospitality and Catering, Health and Beauty, Sport and many others. The new building was constructed between 2009 and 2011 at a cost of £53 million, with final groundswork completed in summer 2012. The College was officially opened by HRH the Duke of York in February 2012. Its Skills Academy was opened by the Rt. Hon. The Lord Mandelson in October 2011.
