We are aware of the weather conditions across Cornwall currently and are monitoring the situation closely. The college is open as usual but staff and students are asked to travel only if safe to do so. We are expecting delays due to travel disruption. Absence reporting can be found here. Thank you for your patience.

Course: FdA Childhood Education & BA (Hons) Human Behaviour Studies
After doing her Level 3 studies at Penwith College, Jem was delighted to find out she could progress on to Higher Education at the same campus. She started at the University Centre studying FdA Childhood Education before taking BA (Hons) Human Behaviour Studies as her top up degree. She is now returning to the University Centre for her Post Graduate Certificate in Education to pursue her dream of teaching.
Jem said: “I studied at Penwith because of the smaller class sizes and individual support that I knew would be beneficial to me.”
“The tutors were responsive and attentive when I needed help.”
“The module content for the courses was great too, and flexible so I could tailor it to my interests and what I want to do in the future.”
