The Glasgow Kelvin College ethos includes commitments to decentralisation and outreach and improving outreach and equality of opportunity.
Its community learning programmes include:
- the John Wheatley Learning Network (contact Sarah Barnes for information);
- the adult learning Wider Access programme (contact Marie Woods for information);
- the Youth Access programme (contact Stuart Lowe for information);
- an Adult Literacy and Numeracy programme (contact Maggie Murphy for information);
- the Community Achievement Awards programme (contact Jane Horne for information); and
- its Community Learning and Development programmes (contact Gary Harkins for information)
The College would be unable to serve its local communities without working in partnership with other community learning organisations, many of which are listed in these pages.
The College is also committed to supporting development of capacity for its community learning and development partners and works where possible to extend its own capacity to others - this includes the extension of its technical infrastructure through the John Wheatley Learning Network, through its letting policy which makes available for community groups at no charge access to its facilities, through the co-delivery partnership method which underpins the Community Achievement Awards programme and through its work-based community learning and development programmes: HNC Working with Communities, NC Introduction to Community Development and the Professional Development Award in Youth Work.
