The Grimsby Institute Group (GIG) is one of the East Coast's largest providers of Further and Higher education. The group comprises of the Grimsby Institute, University Centre Grimsby (UCG), and Yorkshire Coast College in Scarborough and Lincolnshire Regional College in Skegness.
Their Nuns Corner campus in the centre of Grimsby is the main provider of vocational training in the region. It provides an impressive curriculum spectrum, which encompasses full and part time provision from 14 years onwards, community provision, business training and commercial activities.
The Grimsby campus has two other principal sites; the East Coast School of Art and Design is situated at Westward Ho in Grimsby, home to art and music learners; and the Nunsthorpe Community Campus, home to horticulture, animal care and construction.
They have recently opened our new University Centre Grimsby (UCG), which heralds the dawn of a new era for the Grimsby Institute Group and the region. UCG offers around 100 HE programmes through partnerships with universities including the University of Hull, York St. John University, Huddersfield University and Leeds Metropolitan University.
