The College's Eight Strategic Actions
The College’s Strategic Intent 2021 set out eight strategic actions to achieve our vision to be the Learning Destination of Choice.
We will support the region by collaborating and innovating with the civic and commercial sectors, continually developing our curriculum and business models to deliver the true potential of the College through our strategic action: opportunities.
Plymouth Growth Board
The College sits on the highly influential Plymouth Growth Board, the primary forum for public/private engagement that shapes city-wide activity.
This is the delivery partnership of the local growth plan of which the local skills plan is one of the key pillars. Our involvement with this group is significant with the chair of this board also being the College’s Chair of Governors. Our Chief Executive also sits on this body. Other representation on this body includes the Chief Executives of Plymouth City Council, Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust and University of Plymouth. Membership of this group ensures that the College reflects the needs of the city.
The College is an active partner in a Strategic Colleges Development Fund partnership with Bridgwater & Taunton College, Yeovil College, Strode College, Petroc, South Devon College and Exeter College. The particular focus has been shaped by employers and is an emerging priority for the Local Skills Improvement Plan.
An important element of our close regional working relationship within the Devon Colleges Group has been to map our curriculum across the region to ensure that there is effective curriculum coverage to meet skills needs identified through LMI and stakeholder engagement. As a result of this collaboration adult Apprenticeships are mapped for the region.
