Lambeth College is preparing to cut the equivalent of 20 full time jobs in response to massive cuts to its funding.
The institution announced today that it was beginning a consultation process on the job cuts after a savage £2m cash cut for the upcoming academic year.
Voluntary redundancy has also been opened to staff during the 30 day consultation as talks begin with unions and lecturers.
Mark Silverman, principal, said: These proposals are made with the intention of ensuring that the College can manage the reduction in funding for next year and so that Lambeth College can continue to secure long-term financial sustainability.
The beleaguered college came under fire earlier this year for selling its Brixton Hill campus to the Government to make way for a controversial new “catholic-ethos” free school, though Lambeth College insists it will retain some adult learning on the site.
In May last year it announced it would cut 30 to 40 jobs in response to earlier Government budget cuts.
