Birmingham Metropolitan College have announced their proposal to close and sell off Stourbridge College this summer.

The plans comes as a major blow to the staff and students at Stourbridge College, but has serious implications for Dudley and Halesowen colleges, which will struggle to provide places for all of the displaced students.

If the proposal goes ahead those students fortunate enough to get an alternative place at either Halesowen or Dudley face additional transport time and costs in order to access their learning.

We ask that BMet immediately commit to a full consultation about the future of Stourbridge College with students, staff and the local community at all affected institutions, and urge that BMet reconsiders the decision in light of the impact it will have on the local community.
