Our story

This year we celebrate 10 years of learning and aspiration. We've grown to cover a vast area of Scotland, connecting with thousands of people from school pupils to postgraduates. It's always been a privilege to work in our communities.  

We're continuing to grow. Strengthening and developing the opportunities we offer to our learners, local businesses and their employees as needs change and building our support for digital technology and engineering.

We're proud of what our students, staff and partners have achieved over the past decade and these are just some of the highlights.
