Dear Students,

We are pleased to announce that Doncaster College and North Lindsey College have merged to form the DN Colleges Group.

What will change

In the short term, you will see very little change as a result of this merger, as most of the changes will take place behind the scenes.  There will be no immediate changes to how the Colleges operate on a day-to-day basis, or to the curriculum.

The combined Colleges will be known as the DN Colleges Group, and you may start to see this name on official documents, alongside your local college name.

What will stay the same

Your course will continue and there are no changes to courses planned for this year.  Your studies will continue at the same campus, with the same curriculum, teachers and course content.  The name of your college will also stay the same.

We will continue to deliver educational programmes, skills development and training locally in Doncaster and Scunthorpe.  We expect current curriculum options to continue at both campuses and application processes for future courses also remain unchanged.

Greater choices in the future

Widening the range of opportunities to support your journey towards employment is at the heart of this merger.  Over time, you will start to see some exciting new options, and we will share these with you as they arise.  This will include increased choice across further education and higher education courses, as well as professional and technical qualifications, apprenticeships, adult and vocational learning.

If you have any questions or concerns, please talk to your tutor or student support services.  In the meantime, we are looking forward to expanding your local choices and helping you make the most of the skills and qualification opportunities we provide.

Your success is our priority and we wish you all the very best as you continue your studies with us.
