FVC becomes partner of the Centre for Work-based Learning
Forth Valley College has been appointed as the fifth and newest partner of the Centre for Work-based Learning (CWBL).
The CWBL is a partnership between Skills Development Scotland (SDS), the University of Strathclyde, Heriot-Watt University and Robert Gordon University. Its overall vision is to establish the value of work-based learning in the Scottish education and training system.
It was founded by SDS and aims to work in partnership, to influence policy, practice and perception of work-based learning. The Centre will align its work with the Scottish Apprenticeship Advisory Board (SAAB) and lead on policy and research advice to the SAAB.
Dr Ken Thomson OBE, Principal of Forth Valley College, said: “Forth Valley College welcome becoming the fifth partner of Skills Development Scotland’s Centre for Work Based Learning. I am very pleased to be representing the college on this important body, which aims to encourage and promote the benefits of learning and gaining qualifications, while experiencing first-hand how this learning is implemented in the workplace.
“This ties in perfectly with Forth Valley College’s ethos of Making Learning Work and I look forward to working with them to opening up more and more opportunities for Scotland’s future industry professionals.”
