We encourage our learners to get involved in a wide range of activities, events, groups and societies in our region, whether this is part of their course or as an extra-curricular hobby, this is a great way for our learners to gain a greater understanding of the world we live in while acquiring essential employability skills.
During the academic year we work with a number of key organisations and employers to give our learners an experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Some of the projects that our learners have worked on recently include:Mayor's Ball
- Learners from Hospitality prepared and served food to over 100 guests at Grimsby Town Hall for the annual Mayor's Ball. Creative Arts learners give one of their typically lively performances, supported by the hair and make up team from the Grimsby Institute of Further & Higher Education Hair & Beauty department.
Chase Hill Woods
- Engineering learners spent time at Chase Hill Woods, Killingholme, working on the regeneration and preservation of the natural surrounding areas.
Rock Challenge UK
- Creative Arts learners took to the stage at Grimsby Auditorium as part of Rock Challenge. A national competition that sees schools and colleges from across the UK compete in a dance competition, organised by the Be Your Best Foundation. The aim of Rock Challenge is to promote the natural high achieved through live performance. The Hair Art team even won a national award for their work on last year's competition.
Schools in Engineering
- Schools from across the region are invited to attend the Schools in Engineering events, where we work with industry to provide a fun-filled day where teams of young people are set engineering tasks, and are aided by Grimsby Institute of Further & Higher Education staff and learners to produce the best designs, which are then judges by a panel of industry experts.
- Just one of the many international celebrations that we hold at the Institute. Diwali sees us invite members of our local community invited to join us for an evening of celebration. The Festival of Light saw learners give one of their unique performances, while the Hospitality Department catered with a host of international cuisine.
Holocaust Memorial Day
- Grimsby Institute of Further & Higher Education joined the local community in honouring Holocaust Memorial Day in the Grimsby Institute's main hall. The morning saw talks from community figures including Leo Solomon, President of the Grimsby Synagogue and Reverend George Huysee-Smith, the Grimsby Institute of Further & Higher Education's Chaplain.
