The 2019-20 Regional Programme of Action highlights what we are committed to achieving in the forthcoming year. This next stage will unlock our collective potential and harness our combined strengths to realise our shared ambitions for Glasgow’s learners, its colleges and for the city’s future.
Ambitious for Glasgow, ambitious for learners, ambitious for colleges
GCRB, Glasgow Clyde College, City of Glasgow College and Glasgow Kelvin College have developed this first regional strategy for college learning.
This is a transformative strategy developed so that today’s learners will be able to power our growing economy, reach their individual potential, and make valuable contributions to their communities.
This is a collaborative strategy; informed and driven by the visions of employers, the Scottish Funding Council, Skills Development Scotland, Education Scotland, Glasgow City Council, the university sector, schools, and community groups.
This is a regional strategy that builds on our colleges’ strengths and organises our services to address Glasgow’s long-standing economic and social issues.
This is an ambitious strategy that will make a positive social and economic impact on life and lives in the Glasgow region.
The Glasgow College Region is ambitious, regional and collaborative.

Building Scotland’s most inclusive, responsive and effective regional college system
"The Glasgow College Region and the Glasgow Colleges have made huge progress this year. The collaboration and drive to create an integrated, inclusive and responsive college structure is already benefitting learners from Glasgow and beyond. We now have the foundations of a regional college system that will support the Government’s priorities for inclusive economic growth and improved productivity. Our colleges are helping to enable learning and improve the life chances of people not only in Glasgow, but from throughout Scotland and from the many countries represented by our international students.”
