Employers work with us to shape our curriculum and ensure our students meet future industry needs. Join our Business Partnership.
What is The Great Yarmouth College Business Partnership?
At Great Yarmouth College we are rising to the challenge to “provide our growth sectors with the talented people we need to build our economy”.
We recognise that every student who leaves the college with a qualification is a potential employee of a local company. It is therefore imperative that students are equipped with a set of skills that meets industry needs.
“We believe by forging strong partnerships with local industry we can create relationships of mutual benefit, equipping students with the most appropriate skills and knowledge, providing employers with well aligned, qualified staff and further strengthening the college’s standing as the best college in the area for student success”. Stuart Rimmer, Principal
Influence training of future employees
To help us ensure our students will meet the needs of their employer, we have created the GYC Business Partnership.
As a partnership member you can help shape the future curriculum and ensure that our students are fit for their role in line with industry developments.

In addition to shaping and influencing the future curriculum provided by the college we can also assist you with the continued development of your existing workforce.
We will offer a series of CPD opportunities for your employees providing you with a cost effective opportunity to provide professional updates and workshops to your workforce whilst networking with other business leaders in the area.
