Stoke set to cut jobs in bid for recovery
Managers were preparing a skills survey as The TES went to press to identify which full-time and part-time jobs would be lost.
The cut follows the decision to reduce the college's programmes by 10 per cent in the wake of the crisis over under-recruitment which plunged the college into the red.
Andy Robinson, the college's director of human resources, said; "The college regrets having to take this action and will pursue all possible alternatives such as re-training, redeployment, early retirement and voluntary redundancies. "
Governors' chairman Kevin Farrell said: "Students who have already started two and three-year courses this year will be protected by special arrangements, including the joint provision of courses with other education providers.
"We will ensure that all the courses offered next year are fully staffed with appropriate qualified, high quality teachers so that the community can continue to benefit from the excellent education and training opportunities the college offers."
