Turn your creative talents into a career at Yorkshire Coast College

If you have a flair for the creative and want to put your talents to the test, look no further than Yorkshire Coast College (YCC), a leading provider of Creative Arts courses where you’ll train with industry professionals in inspiring environments.

Yorkshire Coast College offers a fantastic range of Further and Higher Education courses for anyone with a passion for creativity that will teach you the practical skills for a rewarding, lifelong career in the industry.

Our Creative Arts courses are based at our Westwood Campus, in the centre of Scarborough, which itself played an important part in the creative history of Scarborough as the former home of the Stephen Joseph Theatre in the Round from 1976-1988.

Learners at YCC get to take advantage of our fantastic facilities which still includes the Theatre in the Round, the Underground Music Institute, a photography studio and specialist studios for printing, ceramics, graphic design and fashion.

Throughout their training at YCC our learners get the chance to take part in shows, events and competitions that really show off their talents. Recently our learners wowed the judges at the Cultural and Creative Finals of Matchfit where they took 1st Place in the Photography, Acting, Drawing, Singer Songwriter, Popular Music Bands and Art competitions.

Our Music learners have even been lucky enough to perform at Scarborough’s Open Air Theatre over the past few years, where they have supported some of the World’s leading artists including McBusted, Katherine Jenkins and Leona Lewis.

One learner, Sophie Norris, got the chance to support Jessie J, and has performed at BT London Live in Hyde Park, before returning to YCC to train for the Level 4 Artist Development Programme. Sophie said: “I decided to study music because it’s passion and my hobby, studying at YCC has given me so much more confidence and made me believe in my music. I’ve loved being at YCC and the fact that the tutors had experience in the music business themselves.”

We are now offering a Foundation Diploma in Art & Design, a highly-respected qualification that is required by most established Art Schools for entry to Higher Education and is an ideal bridge between A Levels or Level 3 study and an Undergraduate Art & Design programme at University.

If you choose to carry on your studies with Higher Education we offer a HNC/HND in Performing Arts, a BA (Hons) Fine Art and BA (Hons) Historical and Performance Costume for Stage and Screen, one of the few places in the UK that offers this unique programme.

There’s never been a better time to enrol for one of our Creative Arts courses, why not take that leap and start your journey towards career success with YCC this Summer.
