KINROSS AND CRIEFF LEARNING CENTRES SET TO CLOSE

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has expressed her disappointment at the decision announced today by Perth College UHI Board of Management that they will close the Learning Centres in Kinross and Crieff in her constituency, as well as the centre in Blairgowrie, in June 2019. 

Ms Cunningham said:

“Providing a community-level educational resource, these learning centres were an example of widening access to further education and, to my mind, a thoughtful and sensible extension of the UHI’s collegiate model.

“I had previously raised concerns when I learned that closure was a possibility and I am very disappointed indeed to learn that the board of Perth College have now taken the decision to close the Learning Centres in Kinross and Crieff.

“I am shocked that this decision has been presented as a sort of secretive fait accompli, without any consultation process.  Staff and students have been kept in the dark and they are axing courses that are not only full but have a waiting list.

“This decision is a backward step and I urge the board at Perth College to think again and find a way of continuing to support these important facilities.”
