As one of two Sixth Form Colleges in Hull, Wyke Sixth Form College is the largest A level provider in the area. With almost 1700 full time students (most of whom are 16-19), our college has grown in size each year. This has been accompanied by a year-on-year improvement in outcomes for our students at every level. As a College, we employ approximately 170 staff.
Work to link business with education is already carried out and we are able to offer work experience for our students from Health and Social Care; medics; dentists; vets; teachers; social workers and nurses. We also regularly welcome employers into our College to talk to students throughout the year.
By definition, employability skills are also a necessity for applications to Higher Education and, as an organisation where over 70% of our students go on to HE, the skills of teamwork; problem solving; numeracy; time management; communication; leadership and enterprise are crucial.
