Grimsby Institute of Further and Higher Education

GIFHE is a large and thriving FE College, it is the largest component of The TEC Partnership and serves over 15000 students from areas of widespread social and economic disadvantage. 70% of students are from widening participation postcodes, 30% of students have a learning disability or difficulty and many have very low prior attainment. The majority of HE students are non-traditional entrants and the College offers provision from Early Years through to Master’s provision.

Our Journey With Educational Technology

GIFHE was judged outstanding in 2017, since that time the Office for Students was established, a new FE inspection framework was introduced, there has been significant apprenticeship reform and the Covid-19 crisis has emphasised the need for different ways of working. New approaches are required to maintain excellent teaching, business efficiency and continuity in a substantially different operating environment.

It could not do this without the ‘digital dynamite’ of the Innovate Team. They have transformed the performance of hundreds of staff across a huge geographical area which in turn has transformed the lives of young people and adults returning to education. Not only has this team transformed our performance it has also delivered significant monetary savings in a time of real austerity for the public sector. They are unparalleled in their transformational impact and here to support you on your digital journey.
