Media Release: Johann Lamont praises importance of college sector at Glasgow Clyde address


SCOTTISH Labour leader, Johann Lamont, highlighted the continued importance of the college sector as she presented BT employees with CISCO Career Certificates at Glasgow Clyde College’s Cardonald Campus.

The MSP for Glasgow Pollok gave an address and met students who have recently completed the network giant’s Discovery Course.

“It’s a great privilege to be invited today and I’d like to give my own congratulations to those who have completed this course,” said Ms Lamont.

“When we think about education, we think of school, and university, but I’d like to also congratulate this college because the college sector plays such an important role in giving learning opportunities.

“By reaching out and encouraging people to learn in different ways,  it provides opportunities in work to learn more… this is a really exciting partnership.”

Congratulating the college’s lecturers and students, the Scottish Labour leader added: “Laying down the structures for people to communicate is important for the economy, and it is important that we continue to teach and develop these skills.”

Duncan McDougall, director of Commercial and International Business at Glasgow Clyde College, said: “Glasgow Clyde College is proud to be at the centre of this fruitful and rewarding partnership.

“The college is one of the country’s leading providers of vocational education and training, and this is more evidence that the courses we provide support businesses and employees by giving them the valuable skills they need to succeed.

“We look forward to continuing this positive relationship with BT and the CWU.”
