Proposed Merger with Somerset College

Bridgwater College and Somerset College have long been at the heart of our communities, providing our students with a broad range of education and training opportunities and supporting local employment needs across Somerset.

We are now entering an exciting new phase for further and higher education in Somerset, as we explore a potential move towards uniting these two colleges into one organisation.

The detail of this potential merger is laid out in a proposal document which is now subject to a public consultation period. The consultation period lasts from 1 October to 2 November 2015.

You are invited to comment on the proposal by completing the PDF feedback form found below. Completed questionnaires should be returned to Bettina Walker bettina.walker@somerset.ac.uk.
