Social Impact Pledge logo

Glasgow Clyde College pledges to:

Challenge ourselves to increase the positive impact we make on our local community and make better use of our assets – our buildings/grounds and our people.

In the next six months we will do at least three things that we don’t do at the moment to improve our social impact.

1st Commitment

Glasgow Clyde College will introduce a technology-focused recycling scheme aiming to improve digital inclusion - Gift-tech. Gift-tech will offer a practical solution to recycling as well as an opportunity to support identified learners who were facing hardship and who may be at risk of further social exclusion or dropping out of learning due to the lack of access to ICT equipment. The scheme will see the College refurbish its old ICT equipment by cleaning, wiping and refurbishing PCs and laptops to a workable state allowing them to be "gifted" to students or local community groups.                                                                           

Geographical location of impact

  • All three campuses - Anniesland, Cardonald and Langside
