Construction starts for a new Post-16 College in Bodmin
Last week, I attended the official start of construction at the 10-acre site to bring a state-of-the-art, post-16 College to East Cornwall which was celebrated at a special cutting-of-the-turf ceremony. Callywith College is being constructed in the heart of Bodmin and will bring quality Further Education provision to young people across North and East Cornwall.
This is a hugely important project for education and skills for our young people. It is not often you can see a purpose built College being built allow those attending a huge opportunity to reach their full potential.
This is all about partnership working as Cornwall Council works closely with Truro and Penwith College as part of our Raising Aspiration and Achievement Strategy (RAAS). We can only improve the educational journey for our young people by working together from pre-school up to FE and HE. Working together we will give a better education experience to all our young people in Cornwall.
