Update on Sussex Coast Area Review

Update by Nick Juba, Chief Executive City College Brighton & Hove


35.1      The Board received a verbal on the Sussex Coast Area Review and an update on the redevelopment of City College, Brighton and Hove presented by Nick Juba.


35.2      Prof. Humphris enquired as to how there could be a much more joined up approach to skills training.


35.3      Nick Juba stated that the Youth Employment Trust could be important to this end and noted that Northbrook College already delivered 150 apprentices every year. Nick Juba added that all partners were welcome to ideas on how to progress the issue.


35.4      Councillor Wall stated that he was pleased to hear the ambition of Further Education providers. Councillor Wall noted the recent financial difficulties of Central Sussex College with the likely impact that there would be no provision in Mid Sussex. This would in all probability mean an increase in demand in Lewes and Brighton as students looked elsewhere for educational opportunities.


35.5      Nick Juba clarified that he was not yet involved in discussions on a possible course of action so was unable to provide any update.


35.6      Andrew Swayne stated that this was a collective concern and he hoped the Board could receive an update to a future meeting.


35.7      RESOLVED- That the presentation and verbal update be noted.
