150 jobs could be created in Cornwall, at a new college.

HOW2 would be based at the Eden project.

It wants to provide courses on things like low carbon industry and focus on developing personal skills.

There will also be business support and technical demonstrations at the site, which could be up and running by 2015.

Bosses hope it will attract youngsters who have turned their backs on education and training.

Biomes boss Tim Smit says it is about building self-esteem and ambition: "Most people are actually pretty smart and all they need is to not feel shy and embarrassed at the fear of failure and also to learn to enjoy the taste of success along the way.

"One of the great joys of Eden is that because it's got this strange atmosphere about it of being a brilliantly high tech construction with a bit of a rock and roll approach to the world, that it will actually be a nice teaching post for those who thought education wasn't for them".

The Eden Project is working in partnership with Cornwall College to develop HOW2.

The development phase has been funded with grants of £385,000 from the European Regional Development Fund under the Convergence Programme and £175,000 from Cornwall Council.
