Colleges Scotland is the collective voice of the college sector in Scotland; striving to create cohesive and sustainable partnerships, demonstrate positive impact, acting as representatives, and campaigning for the sector. Colleges Scotland is also jointly responsible for the implementation of National Bargaining in partnership with the trade unions.
Across Scotland, colleges deliver opportunities to around 230,000 students ranging from courses for those with low or no skills – providing a lifeline into work – up to degree level qualifications.
Colleges play a key role in preparing people for work and delivering a skilled workforce that meets the needs of industry and supports economic growth and productivity in Scotland. Colleges reap £14.9 billion for the Scottish economy each year, representing 8.8 per cent of the total economic output of the nation.
