Millions of pounds will be spent redeveloping two college campuses in Cornwall.

Cornwall College's Camborne campus in Pool will get £4.3m to rebuild the Carlyon building where catering, hair and beauty courses are taught.

At Duchy College Rosewarne, a new £1.7m animal management centre will be built for students

The government's Skills Funding Agency (SFA) will contribute £2m, with Cornwall College finding £4m.

Cornwall College has more than 45,000 students on full and part-time courses across seven sites in the county - Camborne, Newquay, St Austell, Saltash, Duchy College Rosewarne and Stoke Climsland and Falmouth Marine School.

Principal Dave Linnell said improving the vocational training facilities would help students better prepare for the job market.

The work at Camborne and Rosewarne is due to start in April.
