THE merger of Cumbernauld and Motherwell Colleges is taking its public consultation further, announcing two public meetings.
“The Boards of Cumbernauld College and Motherwell College are keen to hear the views of the wider Lanarkshire community regarding the proposed college merger,” a spokesperson told Cumbernauld Media.

In January 2013 the college Boards gave their support to the creation of a new college and both college Boards believe that the size and scale of the new college will allow it to operate more effectively within Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire, across Scotland, nationally and internationally.

“The new college is committed to serving the communities in North and South Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire and beyond and will ensure that learning is available and accessible to all,” the spokesperson continued.

“As part of the merger process a public consultation is now taking place.  The consultation process provides an opportunity for all members of the local community to help shape the future of further and higher education throughout the region.”

“This is your opportunity to tell us what you think.  We want to hear from our local communities, our business partners and other stakeholders.”

One meeting will be held at Cumbernauld College with the second being held at Motherwell College.

The consultation evening at Cumbernauld College will take place on 17th April at 6pm whilst Motherwell College will host a consultation event on 18 April, at 6pm.  

Both college Principals will be giving a presentation on the proposed college merger and are happy to answer any questions put to them on the subject. Meanwhile, refreshments will be provided and all members of the local community who have views on the merger are encouraged to come along.
