Two colleges in Nottingham have merged to become one of the largest colleges in the country.
Central College and New College Nottingham have joined forces today, becoming Nottingham College.
They have described the move as a 'radical transformation of post-16 education' and are looking to support up to 40,000 full and part-time students.
Nottingham College CEO John van de Laarschot said:
The college will have an estimated annual turnover of £80 million and their Board of Governors will be made up of four members from each of the two pre-merger Boards, plus three independent members along with staff and student governors.
