On Friday 8 September, SERC signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Forth Valley College (FVC). The MoU will allow the two organisations to work in partnership. The MoU was signed by FVC’s Principal Dr Ken Thomson and SERC Principal and Chief Executive Ken Webb.
The signing ceremony, held at the college’s SPACE Campus was witnessed by college staff and was a unique opportunity to raise awareness of the partnership.
The partnership will allow staff and students to engage in reciprocal visits and to share best practice in the areas of hospitality, creative industries, Moodle, creative learning, teaching and mentoring. It is also hoped that the agreement will develop through the year to allow the newly formed partnership to identify areas of work which will truly enhance the educational experience of students.
FVC Principal, Dr Ken Thomson, said: “We have been working closely with SERC over the last few months and we are delighted to have signed this Memorandum of Understanding with them in some very exciting academic and support based areas. The MoU will further strengthen our links with one of Northern Ireland’s best colleges and our students and staff are definitely going to benefit from working closely with SERC over the coming years.”
SERC Principal and Chief Executive Ken Webb explains: “This exciting milestone recognises our continuing focus on sharing our expertise in the areas of creative learning, mentoring and technology enhanced teaching and learning. I have great pleasure in signing the Memorandum and look forward to the partnership developing over the years. It is testimony to the growing reputation of SERC that we have been successful in securing this and other successful partnerships throughout the years."
