Tresham College has successfully merged with Bedford College to form the Bedford College Group.
The merger, completed last month, has seen the successful joining of Wellingborough, Kettering, Corby, The National College of Motorsport at Silverstone, Shuttleworth College at Old Warden near Biggleswade and The Bedford Sixth Form.
Principal and Chief Executive of Bedford College since 1998, Ian Pryce, said: “This bigger college group will be able to better serve Bedford and North Northamptonshire. We are committed to the communities of Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough as well as Bedfordshire and we plan to grow provision in all areas.
“The enthusiastic response we have had from employers, local councils, staff and students shows the community has the same ambition as us and that support will help enormously.”
