Permanent move to digital delivery


A leading local college has announced that two of its apprenticeships will continue to be delivered online on a permanent basis after its remote teaching was praised by both learners and employers.

Truro and Penwith College moved timetables online in March of last year in response to lockdown and the Covid-19 pandemic and has been recognised as a national leader of online learning, being one of only 20 colleges leading a Department for Education (DfE) project to develop “cutting edge digital approaches to online learning”.

Strong support for its digital delivery and calls from learners and employers have influenced the decision to offer online options for Business Administrator Level 3 and Team Leader/Supervisor Level 3 Apprenticeships on a permanent basis, with the next groups starting next month.

Adele Bull, head of apprenticeships and business relations at Truro and Penwith College, commented: “The college is very pleased to support our employers and learners with the move to permanent online delivery for these programmes. 

“We are very proud that we have been able to adapt to online delivery, maintain our outstanding learning experience and continue with the unbelievable results achieved by learners in these areas.
