A college has celebrated the success of its first year after merging, and promised a bright future going forward.
Andrew Wren, principal and chief executive, was pleased with the progress of the first year, and praised the staff for their dedication and planning.
He said: "The future looks bright. The quality of provision is going from strength to strength, and the college's finances are extremely strong.
"There has never been a wider choice for young people, adults and employers in the area."
Barrow and Furness MP John Woodcock said: "It is clear that in the first year as a merged organisation Furness College has been committed to maintaining the high standard of education and training for the people of Furness and surrounding areas.
"What we have seen is a smooth transition to create a single, larger and more financially resilient college that safeguards the high quality of post-16 education and training available here in Barrow."
