New Research Report highlighting West Lothian College role in tackling poverty and inequality

Today (Wednesday 8 February 2023) we’re delighted to launch new research report Pathways from Poverty: Leading With Empathy and Vision: An Insight Into West Lothian College, produced in partnership with West Lothian College.
This is the third report in the CDN Research and Enhancement Centre’s Pathways from poverty research series. As identified within the first two reports, Current challenges and the role of colleges (March 2022) and Colleges for communities (September 2022), colleges play a crucial role in tackling poverty and inequality and in driving a more inclusive economy.
This latest report picks up on the themes and challenges from the first two reports and provides a detailed case study of West Lothian College’s trauma-informed approach. From new and in-depth interviews conducted as part of the research, college staff, learners and community partners detail the impactful ways in which a whole college approach to trauma has both influenced the College ethos and become embedded within wider partnership initiatives.
Jackie Galbraith, Principal and CEO, West Lothian College states:
“Shared commitment from our staff, our student association, community partners and activists is building a whole-system approach to creating hope and opportunity in West Lothian”
