Specialist Awarding Organisations for the Service Industries
“It is a pleasure to work in partnership with the International team at New College Lanarkshire. When the team came to me with a proposal to provide their specialist training in Dental Nursing in India, we worked together to find a perfect-fit and bespoke solution. The team are very reliable, capable, enthusiastic and receptive to ideas. They are proactive, positive, accommodating and supportive. Consideration for all the people involved is as important to them as ensuring the success of the project. They make sure that I am always kept abreast of project developments and fully involved in decision making.”
Runa McNamara, International Commercial Director
New College Lanarkshire’s partnerships have positively contributed to the internationalisation agenda that we champion here at the British Council.
In a complex and connected world students need the right skills and awareness to engage with global labour markets and shape the future for themselves and for future generations.
The commitment shown by college leadership to broadening the horizons of students and staff and using international work to enhance curriculum is to be applauded. New College Lanarkshire’s partnerships to date have led to sustainable change at the college and overseas.
We value New College Lanarkshire’s commitment to internationalism and look forward to watching their partnerships go from strength to strength.

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.
