Message from the Chair
I am delighted to chair the Edinburgh College Development Trust and am certain the trustees will help deliver real benefits to the students, staff and the college.
Our vision is simple – to enhance Edinburgh College by providing new opportunities for its people. Our mission is to bring together people, organisations and resources to generate income, give advice and deliver projects that will strengthen the contributions Edinburgh College makes to the communities it serves.
We recognise the strengths of Edinburgh College and the challenges it faces as a new organisation. The trust has freedom to help deliver real benefits to the students, enabling a wider and more diverse range of students to attend college and achieve more than may have been possible before. It will also work in partnership with alumni, businesses and other organisations to deliver benefits ranging from high-quality work experience to substantial development of college facilities, which will support staff as well as students.
Among the trustees we have a broad range of experience from all types of public and private organisations, with each of us bringing a unique perspective to helping the college develop both internationally and locally. We span the arts and humanities, the sciences and engineering, sports and the military but are united in the common purpose of wanting to make a difference with your help.
