Cornwall College has appointed a new programme coordinator to help integrate sustainability into its construction courses.
Clare Lenehan, a former teacher at both Mounts Bay and Humphrey Davy schools in Penzance, will be working with teaching staff at Camborne, St Austell and Saltash campuses to help teach students about sustainability and prepare them for the overall sustainable construction agenda.
John Stagg, Cornwall College’s corporate curriculum lead for technology, said: “Sustainability has now become more of an issue than ever before and especially within the construction industry, which can use a lot of natural resources and materials.
“As a faculty, we are very dedicated to sustaining the industry and this programme helps us look at how we can help do that. Clare’s appointment puts the College at the forefront of trying to prepare our students for what’s going on in the industry.”
