Bicton College officially launched its merger with the Cornwall College Group at the Devon County Show.

The merger has created one of the country’s largest land-based providers of education and training; with more than 1,200 acres of land in Devon and Cornwall.

Dr Phil Le Grice, head of rural economy at the Cornwall College Group, said: “The merger gives us an opportunity to work more closely together to enhance the reputation of our land-based specialisms.

“Our partnership will extend choice and access to agricultural training, skills and study across Devon and Cornwall.”
