KIRKLEES College has announced they will have to cut jobs as they seek to save £3m.
Blaming a Government funding squeeze, bosses at the college, which is getting ready to move a new £73m site on Huddersfield's Waterfront, say they have had to make decisions to centralise services.
But the cuts means that the equivalent of 50 full time jobs will be lost from the college's 1,400 strong workforce.
Among the cuts are:
A reduction in childcare places offered at main centres and the withdrawal from all community crèches where the college provides courses.
Jobs to go among administrative, nursery and crèche staff.
All services, mainly adult courses, at the college’s Holmfirth Centre axed once classes finish in July.
Services to be centralised at fewer locations.
Principal Chris Sadler said: "There will be more changes to the way that we deliver in line with what the government signals in terms of funding.
"This is year one of a series of cuts.
"What we are trying to do is soften that over a period of years."
Bosses hope to find the 50 posts through voluntary redundancy and are in talks with the unions.
