Penwith plans to rebuild and expand

28th September 2001 at 01:00
Penwith college in Penzance announced yesterday that it is to relocate its campus and totally rebuild the main college.

The college has decided it cannot expand on its current site, even though it has in recent years added a new sportsdrome, IT centre, modern language labs and rebuilt science labs.

If it made more changes on its present site the college would have to close for a year, said a spokesman.

The plan is for the new premises to be three times as big, and be up and running by 20045. Funding will come from the Learning and Skills Council, the sale of the existing site, and other sources.

"There are many vocational courses we want to do but we have no workshop facilities," said the spokesman. "We also want to offer more higher education courses."
