Working at The Cornwall College Group
We have been serving our communities by providing education, training and career opportunities for more than a century.
Working closely with schools, businesses and leading organisations, we have an uncompromising ambition to provide quality experiences and outcomes for our learners and the wider region.
With a new, highly experienced leadership team, this is a fantastic time to be joining us as we work towards a brighter future for all. We want to hear from anyone who is as committed as we are in our mission to provide exceptional education and training for every learner to improve their career prospects.
I love the fact that our work has such a positive impact on our learners and the communities we work in. The College is also a very considerate employer, which is amazing as I have a young family.Jon S.
Working here is rewarding and a lot of fun. Many of my colleagues are now good friends and I like getting involved in the staff sports programmes, especially 5-aside football. We do work hard, but we also know how to let off steam.James K.
