Petroc plays a key role within the Devon Colleges Group; a partnership with a shared vision focussed on enhancing skills, raising aspirations and driving regional economic growth and productivity.
The Group consists of Petroc, City College Plymouth, Exeter College and South Devon College, all of which are rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and already have a successful history of working together.
We see the Devon Colleges Group as an effective collaboration which is key to help deliver the skills our regional economy needs, both now and for the future. The partnership will bring greater local knowledge, information and influence with decision makers and funding bodies to support education and skills aspirations.
Through collaborative quality improvement strategies, planning and support, the Devon Colleges Group will be able to meet Devon’s growth ambitions within a prompt timescale. Alongside fellow members of the group, Petroc wants to see businesses grow more quickly, make best use of funding to invest in workforce skills, and ensure that Devon residents have the right skills to access good jobs.
