Impact 'likely' on Ludlow College jobs


Some teaching jobs are "likely" to be affected at a Shropshire college which has said it has had to reduce its range of adult education courses.

Ludlow College said it intends to streamline its curriculum from September due to cuts in national funding provision for adult courses.

It was working closely with staff and their representatives, it added.

The college said it would continue to offer a comprehensive A-level programme.

'Proud history'

Chair of governors Ewart Carson said: "The college, like many others, has had to reduce the range and volume of adult education courses in line with income reductions and cut its cloth accordingly.

"The college however remains committed to meeting the needs of the local community in terms of literacy and numeracy support for adults as well as offering training for potential teachers.

"Training for local employers as well as a number of adult leisure courses will be provided from September."

Mr Carson added that the college has a "long and proud history of providing high standards of education".

He said: "We would like to reiterate that any decisions taken to streamline our curriculum and staffing levels will not have a detrimental impact on student performance and achievement."
