All of the work that New College Lanarkshire has undertaken in Europe and more widely is done so with total professionalism and a focus on customer and client needs. Staff involved show a genuine and ethical commitment to supporting customers, clients, partners and stakeholders to achieve their own and shared objectives. One extremely pleasing aspect to this is that New College Lanarkshire never over commits and under delivers: it only undertakes activity for which it has the competence and capacity to deliver on time and to target. This is underpinned by a planned and focused approach to external activity which ensures that European and wider international activities are relevant to and contribute to the college’s strategic ambitions.
New College Lanarkshire champions effective cooperation and worthwhile collaboration in our own network and it has, also, made valuable contributions to collective activities with partner networks in Finland, Netherlands, Northern Ireland and Slovenia. The college’s work in China has been a useful exemplar for Scottish partners and its work on student and staff mobility is highly regarded throughout the United Kingdom.
