Merger Consultation

Cambridge Regional College and Huntingdonshire Regional College are proposing to merge to form one college from 1 August 2017, renaming HRC as ‘Cambridge Regional College – Huntingdon Campus’.

The colleges are carrying out a one-month consultation from 1 April and are seeking views from all stakeholders. To find out more about the merger proposal, and to give your views, please see the Merger Consultation Document here.

The new college will build upon the strengths of both organisations to ensure that the needs of employers and students across the region are met more effectively than ever before. By close working with employers and other key stakeholders it will seek to ensure it provides outstanding outcomes for students, employers and staff.

The merged college will increase opportunities for students, deliver high quality education and skills training, and work with employers throughout the region to respond to the key skills needs of our booming Cambridgeshire and East of England region.

It will also develop increased opportunities for training in high value manufacturing and emerging technologies through the new £10 million iMET engineering and manufacture centre at Alconbury.

The proposal for merger is supported by the two colleges, the Government’s Area Review, local authorities and the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership.
