… and buildings protects the future of CoSE as it signals the club’s commitment to the college and its students.
Under the proposed transfer Kidderminster College have committed to no loss of entitlement for any learner or member of staff at CoSE.
Two years ago, in 2019, following a review commissioned by the FE commissioner, BMet transferred its FE provision at Stourbridge College to Dudley College of Technology and Halesowen College.
The latest transfer of provision will mean that BMet no longer operates within the Black Country and concentrates purely on its provision in Birmingham.
Both colleges will now enter into detailed discussions on the practicalities of these arrangements with staff and students at CoSE.
… Kidderminster College Principal, Cat Lewis, said:
“I am delighted that we have been given this opportunity to take over the delivery of provision at CoSE.
“We are very well placed to ensure there is continuation of learning for students at the Centre of Sporting Excellence and I think this also represents a fantastic opportunity to bring a local centre back firmly within its own community.
“We can absolutely guarantee a place for every current learner and every new applicant at CoSE and we look forward to working closely together with BMet.”
