Truro and Penwith College is proud of its policy of widening participation; with approximately 50% of our students from schools and colleges and 50% mature learners (21 - 60+) we have an exciting mix in our seminars, workshops and classes. As part of our commitment to learners from all backgrounds and ability, we spend a proportion of our income from tuition fees to support students from disadvantaged groups to access our University level courses, succeed and progress to employment or higher level courses. Our commitments are published in our Access Plan and Access and Participation Plan.
