Collab Group Scotland

Collab Group Scotland is an innovative partnership of three leading Scottish colleges who work together to collaborate on shared issues. The three colleges in the partnership are North East College Scotland, Edinburgh College and West College Scotland. Our Scottish colleges are anchor institutions in their local community, and by working together, they can generate scale and impact across the whole of Scotland.

The partnership has been set up to identify opportunities to influence skills policy in Scotland and shape the debate around some of the most significant issues facing the further education sector. The Scottish FE sector has undergone considerable change over the last decade, and Collab Group Scottish Colleges have emerged as critical institutions to stimulate economic and social development across Scotland.
