New era for colleges

A new regional board is to be established which will take responsibility for Aberdeen College and Banff & Buchan College.

In October last year, Aberdeen College and Banff & Buchan College of Further Education signed a Federation agreement.

The new agreement will allow the two colleges to plan and deliver a fully-coordinated programme of further education opportunities across the North-east and work together to seek opportunities to share services, premises, course development and course delivery in order to maximise the efficiency of the use of resources.
