Chesterfield College is to axe 70 jobs .
College chiefs blame a £4.2million budget shortfall and a decline in 16 to 18 year olds for the need for redundancies.
The jobs to go will be across management, teaching and support positions
College Principal Trevor Clay said, “We have entered into a period of consultation with recognised unions together with communicating to all staff the reasons for our proposals so we can listen, discuss and respond to any alternative suggestions.
“Last year, through a voluntary redundancy scheme, we were able to largely avoid the need for compulsory redundancies.
“The continuing decline in the number of 16 to 18 year olds within the county, the growth in the demand for Apprenticeships, together with reduced government funding are fundamental factors reflecting the need for restructure.”
