A CONSULTATION on plans for Kidderminster College to join one of the largest education and training groups in the country closes tomorrow.

People will have up until 5pm to give their views on the college's proposal to merge with NCG.

It announced last year that it was seeking a suitable partner to increase its local impact and chose NCG after looking at proposals from a number of organisations.

Details of the plans have been published on the college's website and copies are available from its reception in Market Street.

David Cory, the college's chairman of governors, said: “We would like to hear everyone’s views about the proposed merger, whether they are students, parents, local businesses or residents. It is quick and easy to do. It will only take a few minutes to fill in the questions."

The responses, together with other information, will be fully considered as part of any final proposals that are put forward with a view to concluding the merger in time for the start of the 2014-15 college year.
