Colleges agree merger

North Shropshire College (NSC) and Herefordshire and Ludlow College have agreed to seek a merger. The move would enable students in both settings to access a broader range of courses and facilities.

Chair of NSC governors Gillian Richards says, “NSC’s governors are unanimous in the decision to join Herefordshire and Ludlow College. The merged organisation will offer more for all our students, communities, businesses and other key stakeholders. I look forward to the exciting developments ahead.”

Herefordshire and Ludlow College’s chair of governors Igor Andronov says, “I’m looking forward to working in close partnership with NSC to secure a bright future for the students, who I believe will stand to benefit from this merger. My personal involvement in previous successful mergers with Herefordshire and Ludlow College convinces me that we have much to offer to the future of NSC.”

Both colleges will now work together, with the support of the Government’s Treasury Transaction Unit, towards achieving the merger, with the aim of completing later this year.
