Job cuts on the cards at col­lege

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

MACCLESFIELD Col­lege has an­nounced it could be mak­ing a small num­ber of re­dun­dan­cies af­ter a loss of Gov­ern­ment fund­ing in cer­tain ar­eas.

The col­lege would not say how many posts would be af­fected or whether the re­dun­dan­cies would be com­pul­sory or vol­un­tary.

Simon An­drews , who an­nounced last month he will be leav­ing the col­lege for a po­si­tion at Stock­port Col­lege, said: “The col­lege is not mak­ing large scale re­dun­dan­cies, we are tak­ing out some pro­vi­sion which the Gov­ern­ment is no longer fund­ing. This may re­sult in a small num­ber of re­dun­dan­cies in the ar­eas af­fected.”

Mr An­drews be­came chief at Macclesfield Col­lege in 2012, af­ter an Of­sted in­spec­tion found it to be ‘in­ad­e­quate’.

Fif­teen months later the col­lege met the re­quired Of­sted stan­dard of ‘good’ in an in­spec­tion.
