Glasgow Kelvin College works with a wide range of partner organisations and consults routinely on its key strategic priorities with groups including staff, Board Members, students, employers, partners and service users.
As part of this Strategic Planning process, College Managers were delighted to welcome around forty representatives from partner stakeholder organisations to the Big Ask 2018 event to Platform at The Bridge, Easterhouse in March. The consultation event provoked extensive discussion where partners from schools, voluntary sector, local authority, industry and community organisations identified their key needs from the College in the medium term. This follows on from a staff consultation event earlier in the year and responses will help the College to frame its Strategic Plan for 2018-21.
It was a lively event with input from a range of speakers, including the President of the College Student Association, the CEO of Scottish Canals and a local Head Teacher. The event concluded with a networking buffet lunch.
The feedback provided interesting insights and fresh ideas as to how the College could frame its revised strategic priorities.
Thanks go to all the guests who took the time to give their valued input to the event and to the speakers whose presentations stimulated the group discussions. Thanks go also to the staff at Platform and to all Glasgow Kelvin colleagues whose support and contribution helped to ensure the success of the event.
A report on feedback from the Big Ask will be made available on the intranet in the near future.
