Our College Centres

We aim to make a difference to our local community and that starts in our 10 college centres.

From Ullapool in the north to Kilchoan in the south, we're a small college covering a vast and often remote region.

We're incredibly proud to work with our communities to:

  • improve people's prospects
  • deliver specific training opportunities that our communities need most from maritime to computing
  • contribute actively to local life through fundraising and events
