  1. Devon school's staff redundancies are 'heartbreaking'

    BBC Spotlight

    A Devon headteacher has described the number of staff redundancies caused by funding cuts as "heartbreaking".

    Jayne Keller, head at Sherwell Valley Primary School in Torquay, said 13 teaching assistants had lost their jobs due to financial pressures.

    The latest figures from the government show that the number of teachers in Devon's schools has dropped by 284 from 2016/17 to 2017/18, and there are 367 fewer teaching assistants.

    The government said more money than ever before is going into schools.

    But Ms Keller said there was "nothing left to cut".

  4. Cornwall College could merge with Truro and Penwith

    BBC Spotlight

    Cornwall College - which has eight campuses in Cornwall and Devon - may have to merge with Truro and Penwith College amid ongoing financial concerns.

    The college has been successful in securing a "restructuring grant" from central government, believed to be worth more than £30m, but it could come with certain conditions attached.

    Cornwall College

    A review of post-16 education in Cornwall - carried out by the government's Further Education Commissioner - recommended a possible merger of Cornwall's two main further education colleges, saying it would be "in the best interest of learners, businesses and the wider Cornwall community".

    The report said "competition has in this instance led to duplication, excess space and financial failure at one major provider".

    But the principal of the Cornwall College Group, Dr Elaine Mcmahon, CBE, said they're focusing on collaboration rather than becoming one entity.

    Quote Message: We have, with Truro and Penwith College, worked for many, many years successfully. I was really thrilled when I first joined in November to see how many projects we've worked on with Truro and Penwith for decades. In that [the Further Education Commissioner's] report is about one single entity as an option. We're building on what we already do: working together on projects for the benefit of people in Cornwall...We're looking at how we could work more collaboratively. It may be that we can actually look at being one entity some time in the future, but right now it's about collaboration." from Dr Elaine Mcmahon, CBE, Interim chief executive and principal of the Cornwall College Group
