New college seeks board members

Have your say

THE new Edinburgh College is seeking “influential and inspirational” individuals to help it play a key role in defining the future of further education in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Edinburgh College, the product of a merger of Edinburgh’s Telford College, Jewel & Esk College and Stevenson College Edinburgh, is looking to attract the best talent possible to join its board of management.

The college, the biggest FE college in Scotland, will accommodate more than 35,000 students – the biggest student body in Edinburgh – when it opens on October 1.

Ian McKay, chair (elect) of Edinburgh College, said board members will contribute to the leadership and control of the new college.

The selection process for board members is beginning this week with a view to appointments being made within the next six to eight weeks.
