Petroc announces 52 redundancies
PETROC has announced a total of 52 redundancies following consultation with staff and unions.
But the college says after making budget savings of more than two million pounds at its Barnstaple and Tiverton the number was lower than expected.
From the 1,100 strong Petroc work force it said 33 members of staff had opted to leave through voluntary redundancy and there had been 19 compulsory redundancies.
The college said that number is expected to fall even further, as internal redeployment opportunities are filled.
“Thanks to the entrepreneurial approach everyone at the college has taken to bringing in additional money and reducing spending, we’ve kept redundancies to a minimum,” said Principal David Dodd.
