City of Glasgow College Annual Report & Accounts 2019-20

Introduction

At the heart of Glasgow's Learning Quarter, and embracing the River

Clyde, our twin site super college is one of the largest and most

diverse tertiary education establishment in Scotland.

Approximately 40% of our students are from Glasgow, with the

remainder from other parts of Scotland, the UK, Europe and across

the world. In 2018-19, we welcomed students from over 130

different countries to our vibrant student population, enhancing the

learning and working environment for the whole College community.

City of Glasgow College offers a wide range of educational and

training opportunities at levels ranging from foundation courses

through to Higher National Diplomas and degree programmes

in association with our Higher Education partners. There are

opportunities to study at a level that encourages success and

progression, enabling our students to reach their full potential.

The College provides over 2000 courses across a diverse range of

technical, business, and professional curriculum areas, via the four

Faculties of:

• Creative Industries

• Education and Humanities

• Hospitality and Leisure

• Nautical and STEM

We maintain a commitment to our Purpose to Let Learning Flourish

through the inspiration, excellence and innovation of our learning and

teaching methods. City of Glasgow College was the first college in

Scotland to receive the benchmark Investors in Innovation award,

as well as the internationally recognised EFQM European Excellence

Award for sustaining outstanding results. Our unique Industry

Academy model channels our curriculum and staff expertise, along

with external industry partner collaboration, to match the needs

of students with the needs of employers. As a result, our students

graduate with industry-relevant skills and qualifications.

The College's multiple award-winning buildings represent a £228

million investment in tertiary education for Glasgow, Scotland

and beyond. The two campuses were meticulously designed to

offer state of the art facilities and superb learning opportunities

to our students - ready to adapt to the changing needs of future

generations.

The Board of Management acknowledges that the best interests of

the College correspond exactly to the best interests of the College's

stakeholders. That is, our students - past, present, and future; our

staff; our partners in Scotland, the UK, and abroad; and the City of

Glasgow whose name we are proud to bear.

This report provides a reliable reflection of our progress in 2019-20.

In the face of the extraordinary challenges of the global Covid-19

pandemic, the College maintained its focus in helping to fulfil

aspirations, support industry, build communities, and in so doing,

enhancing people's lives and preparing for recovery.
