More than 100 jobs are under threat at Tresham College’s campuses in Corby, Kettering, and Wellingborough - but 93 new roles will be created in a shake-up of services.

The college of further education has been reviewing its services since the start of the year, and yesterday (Oct 18) bosses told staff that there would be number of changes to the structure of the college and its curriculum because of a reduction in funding.

The college has now entered a six week consultation period with 106 staff over planned changes which will see 93 new jobs created across the campuses.

Tresham has said it will look to find job roles for those affected in the restructuring.

Principal Stuart Wesselby said: “The decision to see 106 staff at risk of redundancy has not been taken lightly and is designed to have minimal impact on our learners.

“Unfortunately we have had to make this decision in light of continued reductions in funding and an increased open market place that the college finds itself in.

“The planned changes and creation of 93 new posts will ensure a quality educational experience for all of our learners and improve our links with business and college customers to enhance the learner experience and put the learner and customer at the colleges core.”

In May, the college announced that it was cutting 78 roles because Government funding was slashed.
