Fife Colleges Collaboration

Following months of consultation, Carnegie College has confirmed it will seek the creation of a Regional College for Fife before a Tertiary Education Institute with Edinburgh’s Napier University.

The College has consulted extensively with students, staff, the community and industry stakeholders, as well as holding intensive discussions with Adam Smith College, Elmwood College and Edinburgh’s Napier University.

Dunfermline MSP Bill Walker has welcomed the move as a positive step:

“The Fife colleges will unite to form a new ‘super-college’, perhaps with multiple campuses.

“The Principal of Carnegie College sounds very positive, and I agree that this is an exciting time and will present opportunities to take further and higher education in Fife to new levels.

“This is part of the Scottish Government’s move to ensure learners are truly at the centre of education.”

The Scottish Government has been undertaking a wide-ranging review of Further Education in Scotland as part of its pre-legislative consultation document “Putting Learners at the Centre”, combined with an additional review of regionalisation and funding.
