South Cheshire College and West Cheshire College have today (31 March 2017) formerly merged to create a new FE College for Cheshire.
The newly formed college, which will have an annual turnover of £40m with more than 11,000 students and 1,300 apprentices, will retain the existing brands of South Cheshire College and West Cheshire College at its campuses in Crewe, Ellesmere Port and Chester.
It will be led by principal and chief executive Jasbir Dhesi. He says: “I am grateful to so many colleagues and stakeholders who have worked hard to make this merger a reality. In particular, I would like to publically acknowledge the encouragement, support and challenge we have received from both the SFA and the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), without which this merger would not have been possible.”
He added: “I am therefore absolutely delighted to announce the merger of South Cheshire College and West Cheshire College – by bringing the two colleges together we have been able to secure the future of further education across Cheshire and make a significant contribution to the economic development of our region.”
