New chief exec at Cornwall College


The Cornwall College Group (TCCG) has appointed Rob Bosworth as its new principal and chief executive, following the retirement of the current principal, John Evans.

Bosworth joins TCCG from Exeter College, where he served as deputy CEO.

During his tenure, Bosworth was pivotal in enhancing the educational framework of the college, contributing more than two decades of expertise to help shape its educational offer and student services.

“I am absolutely delighted to be appointed as the new principal and chief executive of The Cornwall College Group,” he said.

“It has been overwhelming to experience the passion and commitment of the staff, and a real joy to meet the incredible students. I would like to take this opportunity to thank John Evans for his contribution to the region as chief executive.

“The college has made immense progress during his tenure. I look forward to working with the TCCG board, the leadership team and college staff, to build on this, and ensure Cornwall and Devon have a world-class further education offering for its community.”

Patrick Newberry, the TCCG chair of governors, said everyone was “delighted to welcome Rob to the Group”.

He said: “His outstanding track record in further education and his integral role in the success of his current college assure us that he will build on the excellent work John Evans has done and ensure we remain an excellent college for learners and our community.”

Bosworth starts at TCCG on July 1, with Evans leaving on July 12.
