TIMES are changing at Moulton College. A new, strengthened management team together with a renewed focus on delivering the courses that Northamptonshire needs is already bringing benefits to the college and its students.
Following an extensive review of its curriculum offer the college is expanding its range of courses to include Business, Electrical Installation, Veterinary Nursing as well as new courses in Food and Nutrition. These new courses are scheduled to start in September this year.
Corrie Harris, Principal and CEO, said: "We recognise the importance of working more closely with local industries, and this year we will be establishing business advisory groups, bringing together local companies who operate in our key sectors such as agriculture, animal welfare, construction, equine and food & drink."
"Our plans include hosting a series of business networking events with our current employer partners and other stakeholders. We will be looking at how we can best help progress their skills needs now and in the future, including the delivery of higher level business qualifications supported by our specialist curriculum areas."
The college is also looking at how to help the local business community make the most of its excellent facilities. With spaces available to hire at the Moulton site for meetings, events and exhibitions, alongside the option of on-site accommodation and catering, the college already welcomes over 300 different community groups and businesses, many of whom have been working with the college for many years.
"It is an exciting time for the college as we continue to expand and grow. With our centenary next year, we're looking forward to celebrating one hundred years of delivering training and professional development at our stunning campuses in the heart of Northamptonshire," said Corrie.
