The Cornwall College Group is committed to enriching the lives of and creating new opportunities for all members of the Cornish community. This is reflected in our mission statement:
“To provide learners with a high quality experience, celebrated through vocational and academic achievement, personal development and employability.”
With over 35,000 students and an annual budget of £76m, Cornwall College, which includes Duchy College and Falmouth Marine School, is one of the largest further and higher education colleges in the country. Established in 1929, it is now made up of seven campuses across the county in Camborne, Newquay, St Austell, Saltash, Rosewarne, Stoke Climsland and Falmouth, as well as learning facilities elsewhere both in and out of county. The College offers a vast range of courses from entry-level through to masters degrees including vocational qualifications, A-levels, apprenticeships, access to higher education diplomas and foundation degrees.
Our shared values underpin all aspects of our work and help guide the behaviour and attitude of staff and students.
- Putting the learner first
- Value and respect for others
- Responsiveness to others
- High quality in all that we do
- Responsibility – individual and team
- Pride in what we do
As part of our strategic plan (2010-2015), we are taking giant strides towards fulfilling our vision for the future which sees Cornwall College, in 2015, as a leading college in the south west. We will be the college of choice for students, their parents and employers.
Finally, Cornwall College will be acknowledged as an enterprising and innovative organisation, well managed and responsive to the external environment.
