UCM forges new links

New scheme designed to benefit staff and students

University College Isle of Man (UCM) has forged links with a college in Scotland - in a scheme designed to benefit staff and students.

The partnership with Forth Valley College on Scotland's east coast will unfold under the leadership of new principal Jo Pretty, who took the helm at the start of this term.

It's hoped students and tutors will travel between the two institutions, sharing ideas and practices.  

The tie-up adds to the college's long-standing relationship with the University of Chester, which provides higher education courses.

Ms Pretty says the Scottish link should enhance college life:
