Statement of Ambition Front Cover Image

The college sector has big ambitions and Colleges Scotland has been working with college chairs and principals to develop a 'Statement of Ambition' ( pdf Statement of Ambition (471 KB) ) for the college sector in Scotland.

The purpose of the Statement of Ambition is to set out a vision, mission and set of values for the college sector for the next five years (2018-2023).  A set of underpinning ambition have also been outlined which will support the achievement of the vision by the sector.    

The college sector’s ambitions are wide reaching and appropriately challenging – and rightly so, as the crucial role that colleges play affect all parts of society and the economy, and can only be realised by working in genuine collaboration with our partners.

As part of the engagement process, Colleges Scotland is consulting and seeking views from key stakeholders and partners.

Please email views and feedback to Will McLeish by Friday 17 August 2018.
