City of Glasgow College is the second FE institution to receive SCQF Ambassador status after taking part in the pilot programme.

Accepting the SCQF College Ambassador plaque on behalf of City of Glasgow College is Roy Gardner, Executive Director, Corporate Development & Innovation with new SCQF Ambassadors Douglas Dickson, Performance & Improvement Director and George McVerry, Head of Client Development & Lifelong Learning.


The College Ambassador Programme aims to encourage engagement with the SCQF in a range of different ways, to raise awareness and understanding of the Framework among a wider audience, enabling college staff to cascade their knowledge of the benefits of the Framework and credit rating across the college with the full support of the SCQF Partnership Executive Team.


It is anticipated that the programme will maximise the impact of the Framework, ensuring that it is perceived as a vital tool for progression; facilitating Senior Phase learning pathways and supporting the aims of the Developing the Young Workforce agenda. It will also ensure that the benefits of the Framework are being communicated to staff and learners right across the college landscape.

We hope to open up the programme to all Scotland's Colleges from the autumn of 2018. For more information contact Anthony O'Reilly
