ANGUS College has agreed to pursue a merger with Dundee College as part of the Scottish Government’s regionalisation agenda.
The boards of both institutions met last week and came to the decision which they say will be the best way forward to serve learners in the local communities.
The merger would see a brand new college created for the Dundee and Angus region.
Angus College, which is based on Keptie Road in Arbroath say now the colleges will seek to build on their strengths and continue to serve he educational needs of their diverse community.
They also hope the move will improve student experience, recognise the commitment of their highly professional staff and operate within government funding guidelines.
Kish Srinivasan, who is leading the merger for the Dundee and Angus region said: “Learners have always come first for both colleges and their interests will remain at the forefront as we strive together to create the best possible opportunities for our communities in the future.”
