Achieving More TogetherThree sixth form colleges. One goal. ACT, creating brighter futures and maximising students’ potential in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
A collaboration between three sixth form colleges committed to helping young people and adults in the Yorkshire and Humber region to achieve their potential.
Each college in the ACT group prepares its students for life in further education or the workplace by equipping them with the skills to succeed. All three colleges in the group are interlinked with the communities they serve, working with businesses, schools and universities to enrich the local economy.
We’re proud to be an integral part of the vibrant Yorkshire and Humber region, creating brighter futures for our exceptional students through the support of our outstanding staff and governors.
Advance Colleges Group
Leading the industry through close collaboration
ACT has a strong focus on guiding students to their chosen development routes. Whether students are heading toward university places, degree apprenticeships or professional pathways, ACT supports the individual in achieving their maximum potential.
The trust combines the resources of the three sixth form colleges to enhance learning, widen the curriculum and provide outstanding support. The three colleges have been recognised as leaders in their field by the Department for Education, by Ofsted, and as part of the Sunday Times Good Schools Guide 2021.
Shaping the future leaders of tomorrow
The trust recognises the importance of building skills in growing sectors such as emerging green energy, STEM, logistics and technology. With this in mind, the trust‘s ACT 360 programme (funded by the DfE through the Skills Accelerator Project) supports the next generation of employees and budding entrepreneurs in these fields.
Students from all three colleges benefit from immersive learning spaces, featuring a state-of-the-art 360-degree virtual environment for training and business incubation. The ACT vision is to stimulate start-ups and advance new businesses in the region’s fastest emerging sectors.
