Our Principal

The creation of New College Lanarkshire was driven by a desire to improve the student experience by maximising opportunities and raising the aspirations of our learners and created greater choice, better progression opportunities and enhanced employer engagement across Lanarkshire and beyond.

The College now provides almost two-thirds of the further and higher education provision in Lanarkshire, delivering qualifications to almost 18,000 learners each year.  As a large regional college, our size enables us to be stronger and better able to tackle the social and economic challenges facing the region and contribute to the broadening of the country’s skills base, with the College becoming a powerhouse for economic development across our region of Lanarkshire and East Dunbartonshire.

Our focus is always on our learners. We are committed to high-quality teaching and effective student support to ensure that everyone has the best opportunity to gain the knowledge and experience they need to achieve their future goals and to truly be “skillset for life”
