The Education Training Collective (Etc.) is a group of colleges and training providers offering high quality educational opportunities for all based within Tees Valley.
Incorporating Redcar and Cleveland College, Stockton Riverside College, NETA Training, Bede Sixth Form College and The Skills Academy, Education Training Collective builds strong links with local authorities, employers, schools and universities to meet the needs of its respective communities, while empowering and enabling the people that it serves.
Together the colleges deliver a full range of courses, training and apprenticeship opportunities from entry level all the way through to full degree programmes, as well as professional and commercial courses.
Alongside its education offer, Education Training Collective also prioritises enterprise, work experience and core employability skills, ensuring its learners have every opportunity to achieve the best possible outcomes. Through the Skills Support for the Workforce programme we can offer a range of qualifications such as accountancy, health and social care and decommissioning.
With a strong emphasis on collaboration, Education Training Collective actively builds relationships with partner organisations from private, public and third sectors, to offer a flexible demand-led and responsive approach.
Its aim is to create greater opportunities by equipping people with the skills to help them into employment, raising aspirations and meeting the economic demands of the region.
