The equivalent of 79 full time roles are under threat at Cornwall College.

It has got 35,000 students at seven campuses across the Duchy - including St Austell, Camborne, Saltash, Stoke Climsland, St Austell and Newquay.

Bosses are hoping most can go through voluntary redundancy, redeployment or retirement.

Deputy Chief Executive Debbie Wilshire said: “Following the restructuring of The Cornwall College Group and the refocusing of our workforce to a career-led curriculum, we are anticipating a reduction of 79 full-time equivalent jobs through redundancy.

“Our staff consultation process is underway and it is hoped that most staff affected will have the opportunity for voluntary redundancy, redeployment, retraining or retirement.

“All affected employees will be offered guidance and support and the group has a strong history of consultation with employees and is committed to working with elected representatives to consider ways to achieve the necessary reductions.

“The proposed reductions are expected to be complete by the end of August 2014.”

David Guiterman from the Association of Teachers and Lecturers in Cornwall said: "Behind these figures there is always a personal tragedy of people who have lost a job. They may have been working in that job for many years, to the best of their ability and, all of a sudden, they are out of a job.

"It's basically to do with government funding. There has been a reduction in funding to Cornwall College and, of course, if there's less money coming in you've got less money to pay your employees unfortunately.

"I have to give Cornwall College a lot of credit. They are actually extremely good. They consult at the earliest stage possible and also take steps in advance to reduce recruitment. So it is possible that a number of people who, at the moment, could be made redundant could be redeployed within the college."
