Glasgow Clyde Education Foundation is a Scottish Charity set up in 2014 to support the learning and life chances of students, potential students and the wider community that is served by Glasgow Clyde College.

We aim to fund strategic projects which have a significant, measurable and lasting impact on students, potential students and the wider community’s learning outcomes. We prioritise projects that create equal access to learning opportunities, take new but sustainable approaches and which represent leading and transformative educational practice within the College and wider learning sector.

We disperse our funding through two grants programmes:

  • Learning and Life Chances  grant programme for project proposals that meet our priorities coming from the College’s own directorates and Students’ Association
  • A  Community Partnerships programme that supports progression routes to learning for neighbouring communities by funding partnership projects between external not-for-profit organisations and the College.

Grants are awarded four times a year at the Trustees’ Board meetings.

To date, Trustees of the educational charity have awarded over £8 million in grant funding to projects which range from capital projects that support a sustainable infrastructure across Glasgow Clyde College's 3 campuses,  innovative approaches to improving pedagogy within the College to community based family and adult learning resources that encourage adults to recommence their learning journeys.
