  • Our Libraries launched 'Read, Return, Repeat', a book swap initiative 
  • The NCTJ names our Fast-track NCTJ Diploma in Journalism the best performing further education course at their course performance awards. 
  • We recreated our Langside Campus in Minecraft, holding the UK's first interactive Open Day in the Metaverse 
  • We became the first FE institution to receive Scottish Breastfeeding Friendly Accreditation 
  • We read minds to help prospective students find the perfect course 
  • The GCCSA achieved the Silver LGBT Charter award 
  • Our Floristry department won Floristry Training Provider of the Year
