College of West Anglia to cut 45 jobs

Up to 45 jobs are under threat because of budget cuts at a college based in West Norfolk.

The College of West Anglia, which employs about 800 people, has had its budget cut by £3.4m by the government.

It runs a range of courses at sites in King's Lynn, Downham Market, Wisbech and Cambridge.

Proposals include cutting 77 posts while creating 32 more, with a net loss of 45. Some courses would also be run from the main centre at King's Lynn.

The Wisbech site will no longer offer courses in computing and performing arts. Those courses will be available only in King's Lynn.

The college is running a consultation on the plans but says it is still committed to building new facilities at its sites.
