Thank you for your interest in City of Glasgow College.

This is an exciting time to join a dynamic and visionary team at our award winning £228 million twin site Super College which is leading the way in tertiary education.

Our twin-site super campus, designed for 40,000 students, has transformed both Glasgow’s skyline and emphasises its pivotal importance as a UK powerhouse for technical and professional education and training.

I’m proud that City of Glasgow College continues to do more than its fair share in widening access. Our talented students have also enabled us to regularly retain our Number One ranking at the UK’s largest and most prestigious skills competition, WorldSkills UK and we are the most popular college destination in Scotland for school leavers.

It is worth noting that 90% of the growth in Scottish Higher Education over the past 10 years has been through colleges. Indeed, it is our students who are driving our college’s pioneering role in bringing about a new future for tertiary education and in boosting the economy and delivering for Scotland.

Colleges are embracing, encouraging and supporting our students to go on to get a job, keep a job and indeed get a better job. At City of Glasgow College, our focus is very much on ensuring our students prosper, and a skilled workforce is essential for longer-term economic growth. By delivering £1.5 billion into the Scottish economy each year, we are certainly doing our bit.

The appeal and effectiveness of City of Glasgow College is that it is a professional and technical skills college for our times. The working relationship our college has forged with industry, through our unique Industry Academy model, benefits not only students but our business and industry partners too. Flagship colleges like ours provide multiple pathways into the world of work and our focus is laser-like on the individual, their employability and  their prosperity; and most importantly, on improving equality and social mobility for all.

As well as outstanding strategic leadership qualities and communication skills, you will have a real desire to inspire excellence in this next generation college. You will be at the forefront of innovation, with outstanding drive and passion whilst delivering exceptional results under pressure.

City of Glasgow College has a focused action plan and clear strategic direction. If you think you can help lead a world-class learning and teaching environment, we would like to hear from you.

I do hope you will be part of this next generation college.
