The growth and success of our College since 1993 and our merger with Penwith College in April 2008 has been remarkable. Our inspection in February 2016 confirmed our Outstanding status as one of the leading FE colleges in the country. Our reputation is excellent.

The College is financially secure and has a turnover of over £45 million. We are seeking to appoint a successor to David Walrond who is planning on retiring at the end of this academic year after almost 17 years dedicated service.

Our new Principal will lead a committed group of staff in ensuring we maintain our Outstanding status whilst ensuring the College meets its strategic objectives.

The Principal will lead in high level strategic decision making, curriculum planning and providing direction for the holistic pastoral provision for all students.

The successful candidate will have the ability to lead major change and development, ensuring Truro and Penwith College is well positioned for the future to maximise opportunities and grow curriculum provision in line with local and regional requirements. You will have extensive experience of building valuable and influential relationships with individuals and organisations at a local and national level and have a positive, open and approachable style of management with effective performance improvement and quality assurance in further education.

• Do you have energy, enthusiasm, and commitment?
• Hold a philosophy centred approach upon the individual student’s value and potential?
• Can you help take forward this outstanding College and its communities?
• Can you provide an environment in which students are well supported?

If so, we are keen to hear from you.

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th February 2020.
