Truro and Penwith College is one of the best tertiary colleges in the country for education and training. This further education college offers a diverse range of opportunities in Cornwall including Degrees, Foundation Degrees and HNDs, PGCE and other teaching qualifications, the International Baccalaureate, A Levels, Vocational courses and Apprenticeships.
The College achieved Grade 1 in every key category in a January 2007 Ofsted inspection report. Outstanding learner achievement on work based learning and employer facing provision was recognised through the re-accreditation of the Training Quality Standard in 2011.
The College has two main sites. Truro College is a purpose built campus with fourteen buildings including the new White Building for Art and Design and the Seaton Building for Construction and Automotive Engineering.
Truro College and Penwith College merged in April 2008. The completion of a £30 million redevelopment at Penwith College has created six new buildings near the centre of Penzance. The facilities and resources are second to none.
