Staff wellbeing is high on the agenda at East Coast College. It promotes good workplace health and enables workplace wellbeing by encouraging staff to take an interest in their health and wellbeing and that of their colleagues. The college constantly seeks feedback from staff through listening groups and surveys to evaluate the impact of its wellbeing strategy.

East Coast College, which is one of the largest colleges in Great Yarmouth and Waveney that has been rated “good” by Ofsted, runs open evenings to encourage trades people to get into teaching and participates in the Taking Teaching Further programme, which supports further education with the funding of new vocational teachers.

It offers a wide range of subjects and technical and professional training to degree level. Students can study a selection of vocational courses and apprenticeships, as well as A-levels, BTEC and CTEC courses at the purpose-built Lowestoft Sixth Form College.

The college has become a centre of excellence for energy, engineering and offshore skills training. It also offers commercial training. A partnership with University of Suffolk means that a range of degree courses is available. Every year hundreds of students from East Coast College go on to university or take up an apprenticeship. Others go into work and build successful careers.

The college prides itself on offering quality teaching and learning. All employees play a vital role in its success and, by developing and performance-managing staff, it aims to reduce attrition and increase the satisfaction and motivation of all workers.
