Hugh Baird College: serving the local community

Community Learning The overall aim of the community learning delivered by Hugh Baird College is to continue to build and extend the community provision that the College provides. This will ensure that the learning needs of the local community are provided for, thus giving individuals the opportunity to develop and progress. The underpinning ethos of community provision is to ensure that community learners experience high quality provision which mirrors that provided for learners attending the main College site. A Community Strategy has been developed in consultation with community based managers/service users from a range of organisations. It has also been influenced by Hugh Baird College’s governing body, senior colleagues, managers and teaching staff. A key aim is to develop programmes to meet government initiatives, linking to aims driven by community based needs. The increasing demands for community based provision, has highlighted the need for tutors who relish the opportunity to work with learners who may be taking their first steps back in to education/training. Learners may be motivated by personal, employment or social needs and it is essential that this is respected, encouraged and built on.
