Grimsby Institute of Further and Higher Education

We are a national leader in digital innovation in the education sector.

Our track record in the development of digital learning and digital curriculum innovation is unparalleled and we actively develop and support the cascade of this expertise to other providers across all phases of education.

We are multi-award winning in this field and believe the exceptional quality of what we do is an exemplar of its type.

We are rated Ofsted Outstanding for our Further Education provision and TEF silver for Higher Education. We serve an area of the country affected by significant social and economic disadvantage. In 2018-19 we were ranked in the top 1% of all colleges in the country for our achievement rates and we support some of the hardest to reach students in the country to achieve to exceptional levels.

“Learners make excellent progress relative to their very low starting points because of the holistic approach to guidance, support and encouragement for all learners, regardless of their barriers or low starting points. The ‘wrap-around’ support from all teachers and specialist support staff is outstanding and enables learners to succeed, sometimes for the first time in their lives.”

“It was amazing to see how creatively and comprehensively you and your team have adapted to online delivery, learning and engagement. I was so pleased to hear that you recognise the absolutely crucial role mastery of technology can play in enabling young people overcome disadvantage and thrive in the modern economy. The how to train your ‘bearded’ dragon demonstration, beamed live from a pet shop, was an absolute highlight and an example that I frequently use when talking to colleagues and other colleges about the transformative power of technology. I am convinced that this is the way of future and that the content your lecturers are producing has long-term value.”
Gillian Keegan – Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills

We have been involved with Grimsby Institute since September and never has there been a time when we needed ICT or ICT help more! I cannot believe how supportive and helpful Grimsby Institute have been; they have gone over and above to support myself and my staff in coming to grips with online learning/teaching. We have learnt ways to accept work that is not confined just to the written word. These skills we are learning are making such a difference to how we can deliver lessons and involve our pupils. Their support has not just been confined to online teaching but the admin support I have needed. St May's Catholic Primary Academy
The partnership with Grimsby Institute has been invaluable in terms of developing our digital learning strategy, based upon their extensive experience of delivering digital excellence. Staff have had the opportunity to develop their digital skills through a wide range of staff development opportunities. The partnership has also opened up opportunities for the sharing of good practice in a wide range of areas, including curriculum 2030 and curriculum purchasing. This has had a positive imapact on our curriculum offer. Loughborough College
Our partnership with GIFHE has been nothing short of outstanding. The level of support and inspiration provided by everyone we have encountered has been remarkable. The partnership has led to several initiatives that will undoubtedly have a positive impact on staff and students. We cannot praise this partnership enough nor thank you enough for being the catalyst and inspiration for developing our practice further. The EdTech Demo Programme is a remarkable endeavour and we are incredibly proud to be part of it. Runshaw College
