Community bears cost of closure
The funding council's heavy-handed actions appear to have led to far fewer students being enrolled in the merged cllege than in the two individual colleges. This has occurred at much greater cost to the taxpayer. The number of courses has been reduced for the Bilston community while hundreds of redundancies have occurred in an area that already has high unemployment.
