The Scottish Ministers wish to consult on a proposal by Glasgow Metropolitan College, Glasgow College of Nautical Studies and Central College, Glasgow to merge into a single, new college. The colleges are likely to seek Ministerial approval of the merger.
Views are also sought on what would be a consequential requirement to promote an order to designate any new, merged college as a 'fundable body' for the purpose of receiving financial support from the Scottish Funding Council. The shadow board of management of the new college has issued its own consultation document which sets out the colleges' rationale for merger.
The Scottish Ministers welcome your views on whether they should approve the proposed merger of Glasgow Metropolitan College, Glasgow College of Nautical Studies and Central College, Glasgow.
