Cuts and attendance signalled death of Grimsby Institute's IT learning centre on Willows Estate
DWINDLING numbers and cuts in Government funding were behind the Grimsby Institute's decision to close its IT learning centre on the Willows Estate.
As reported in Tuesday's Grimsby Telegraph, the Institute is pulling out of the Bishop King Learning Centre in Wingate Parade, where it has held computer classes for the past 10 years.
However, a spokesman for the college said it was looking to relocate the service to another location close to the centre.
No jobs will be lost as a result of the changes as staff will be relocated to other sites.

The spokesman said: "We have leased the building from the Diocese of Lincoln since 2002 and have been delivering IT courses, funded by the Government, at this venue.
"The number of learners using the facilities at Bishop King has gradually decreased over the past few years, and with the change in Government funding priorities, it became apparent that the centre would no longer be a viable for us to continue to operate.
"We are currently looking at a potential relocation of these facilities, where we will be able to offer the same high level of service, from an existing site close to Bishop King Learning Centre.
"Any learners this may affect are welcome to utilise any of our other learning centres including The Learning Shop in the town centre or in Immingham."
