Jobs Under Threat At Weymouth College

The jobs of 21 staff at Weymouth College are under threat.

The College has told Wessex FM they've gone into consultation with employees over a proposal to restructure some areas.

The possible redundancies affect all levels of the education provider.

Weymouth College say they're responding to cuts in Government Funding, and have to make sure they deliver an outstanding service while balancing their budget.

The Principal told Wessex FM 'Against the backdrop of funding cuts, the College has always tried to focus on providing students with the best possible experience.  This has resulted in excellent partnerships with employers and outstanding results for students.  However, the College must work within its funding constraints and it is regrettable that posts have to be lost.'

While this process is difficult and upsetting for the staff affected, the College anticipates that a significant number of staff who are currently at risk of redundancy will be redeployed to other student facing roles and that any compulsory redundancies will be kept to a minimum.   As always, the College is committed to protecting student facing jobs.  '
