College head fears future

Have your say

THE principal of Telford College said he “dreads” to think what the sector will look like in a few years’ time following the announcement of more cuts.

Scotland’s further education sector was one of the biggest losers in the Spending Review announced on Wednesday.

Miles Dibsdall said: “To think that the sector could operate or indeed maintain provision after having our budgets slashed by 10 per cent last year was challenging, but to have them reduced again by 14.3 per cent spread over the next three years is just baffling.

“This is an incredibly difficult feat and I dread to think of what the sector will look like in a few years time when these new cuts are felt.”
