Connected College

Extraordinary times call for an extraordinary College. At Truro and Penwith College we have been making sure our staff and students stay safe during the Covid-19 lockdown by staying at home, but we are also ensuring we stay connected.

Truro and Penwith College has delivered 4,000 online, timetabled sessions virtually each week during lockdown. The initiative was widened to include the launch of ‘Connected College’, to expand our online community to Cornwall and develop digital platforms enabling you to join with us and discover more about staying and studying in Cornwall at one of the country’s top colleges.

Digital Campus

Get ready for the next step. We have developed resources to create a unique Digital Campus, giving Year 11 pupils from across Cornwall access to learning materials and resources to help them prepare and be ready for starting at Truro and Penwith College in September. Links for pupils to enter and use the online Digital Campus are sent direct to schools and headteachers.

Web-streamed Masterclasses

Discover something new. Led by the College’s expert lecturers and teaching staff, online masterclasses have been delivered in subjects ranging from cyber security to the mining history of Cornwall. While aimed at prospective university level students, everyone is invited to attend sessions delivered by our TEF Gold-rated higher education and Ofsted Outstanding further education tutors.

Virtual Health and Wellbeing Sessions

Our award-winning Health, Wellbeing and Sport (HWS) programme has been rolled out online - allowing not only our staff and students to receive gym and exercise classes direct from our qualified staff, as they usually would within College, but also the wider community of Cornwall. Subscribe to the HWS team’s dedicated YouTube channel to keep up to date.
