Scottish Parliament: Colleges (Economic Recovery) ( 1 Oct 2009)

Angela Constance: I completed my higher education degree first and enrolled in West Lothian College some years later, and I must say that my college course made a far more direct contribution to my future studies and career as a social worker than did my university course. If I am blunt, I can say that what I learned during my undergraduate years can be summed up as a few unhealthy lifestyle habits and a...

Scottish Parliament: Higher and Further Education (Governance) ( 1 Feb 2012)

Neil Findlay: I am pleased that the report has taken account of the views of staff, students and stakeholders at West Lothian College.

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive: West Lothian College ( 5 Sep 2002)

Jamie Hepburn: We support the college sector to support local communities and local economies to respond directly to that challenge in a creative fashion, as is happening at West Lothian College. The work that is being done at West Lothian College is obviously a very good example of what is happening, and it is to be commended for that. However, if the member were to go to Borders College, she would see...

Prayers: Further Education (Scotland) (19 Jun 1996)

Mr Tam Dalyell: ..., East (Mr. Welsh) also made important speeches and raised many issues which deserve answers. I hope that the House will forgive me if I stick to a wholly local issue: the proposed relocation of West Lothian college to Livingston. I am not casting aspersions on the motives of those who have made the proposal. I do not doubt their good faith and I understand perfectly well the attractions...

Scottish Parliament: Young People ( 5 Jun 2003)

Fiona Hyslop: The member mentioned PPP and PFI. Because of PFI funding, West Lothian College, which is the only PFI college in Scotland, has problems offering the types of courses that the huge numbers of students who want to go there want to do. The PFI project is harming and limiting the educational opportunities at the college. Is that a concern?
