SVC Recommendation 10: Veterans Attending College
Colleges Scotland to work with their members to engage the veterans sector more closely in order to promote the benefits of, and opportunities to participate in, college education. Ultimately the outcome should be an increase in numbers from the veterans community taking up college places.
Scottish Government update:
Colleges Scotland through the College Development Network, and other key stakeholders are meeting to develop a network of champions for further and higher education. Information on recommendation 16 (below) contains a fuller update on this but essentially, the college sector will be seeking to build upon good practice already underway in a number of universities and seek greater opportunities to increase the number of veterans across the college sector.
