College Development Network (CDN) has announced the launch of the very first Fellowship programme for the college sector, to support the development of ground-breaking initiatives.
CDN’s Fellowship will bring an ambitious future perspective to the work of the organisation and the wider college sector. CDN is ambitious to grow its impact across the sector and Scotland’s regional economies, and the Fellows will support that ambition. The roles are non-remunerated.
The first three-year Fellowships have been accepted by: Annette Bruton, outgoing Principal of Edinburgh College; Brendan Dick, Managing Director of BT Regions and Director BT Scotland; and Mhairi Harrington OBE, outgoing Principal of West Lothian College.
Paul Houlden, Chair of CDN said:
‘I warmly welcome the appointment of our very first three Fellows, whose outstanding knowledge and experience in education and the economy will play a critical role in driving forward our ambitions. CDN’s Board and senior team look forward to working with them.’
Annette Bruton said:
‘I am delighted to have been asked to become part of the first fellowship programme at CDN. It’s a great honour to be able to support a dynamic and improving college sector in this way.’
Brendan Dick said:
‘Scotland’s colleges are central to the economic success of the country and are at the heart of many of our communities. I look forward to being part of delivering what I am sure will be a continued positive impact by CDN.’
Mhairi Harrington said:
‘I am honoured to accept this exciting new Fellowship role and look forward to contributing positively to the ambitious developments planned for the Sector by Colleges Development Network.’
