To celebrate the outstanding innovation, hard work and best practice that takes place across the sector every day, organised by the CDN Marketing and Communications Network, our collaborative #LoveScotlandsColleges campaign launched on Monday 12 February 2024.
The week-long digital campaign highlighted the importance and strength of Scotland’s colleges, promoting examples, both national and local, of how colleges support students, the economy, businesses, communities and staff.
The campaign encouraged all college staff, businesses, local communities and stakeholders to get involved with the campaign on social media by using #LoveScotlandsColleges.
