The appointment of a new principal at Yorkshire Coast College has seen the establishment welcome back an old face.
Clare Wareing has taken up the post after 16 years at York College, where she worked her way up to assistant principal.
However before her career took her westwards Mrs Wareing spent a few years as a middle manager at Yorkshire Coast College.
Her love of the area meant that even though she was went on to work in York she and her family remained in Scarborough.
Mrs Wareing said; “It is nice to be back working in Scarborough. I have a vested interest in ensuring that the post 16 education is as excellent as is possibly can be locally. I have got children of my own that will be coming up through the system.
“Yorkshire Coast College has had a bit of a troubled time. I hope that I will bring some stability to the college, and good practices.
“The college has done a huge amount of work over the last 12 months, and some of its success rates have been outstanding. I am looking to build on that, and one of my main visions it so ensure that Yorkshire Coast College is central to the needs of the business community as well as young people and older students in the community to make sure that the college is first choice for everything that isn’t A level specific.
“I am looking forward to working with Scarborough and its young people and businesses.”
Speaking about Mrs Wareing’s appointment, Sue Middlehurst principal and chief executive of the Grimsby Institute Group, which heads the college, said: “I am delighted that Clare has joined us as Principal of Yorkshire Coast College, she has an extensive background in the Further Education sector and is going to make an excellent addition to our team with her clear focus on the learner and her first-hand knowledge of the excellence that can be achieved through a vocational education.
“I am sure that with Clare at the helm, Yorkshire Coast College will go from strength-to-strength and continue to be a leading provider of vocational education in our region.”
