1 October 2022 marks 10 years since the vesting day of Edinburgh College and we’re planning to commemorate the occasion throughout Session 2022/23.
Over the year, we'll be taking a look back at the past 10 years, celebrating the successes of past and present staff and students - the people who shaped our College - as well as reflecting on the history of our legacy colleges and how Edinburgh College, in its current form, came to be. We will also be looking forward to the next 10 years and our College's ambitions.
We are asking current and former staff, students and partners to get involved with our celebrations which will culminate in an all staff event at the end of Session 2022/23.
Edinburgh College was formed on 1 October 2012 as part of the merger of Edinburgh's Jewel and Esk, Telford, and Stevenson colleges.
The college has four campuses, all of which were previously the campuses of the constituents of the merger:
- Jewel and Esk's College Milton Road (Jewel) Campus - now Edinburgh College, Milton Road Campus
- Jewel and Esk's College Eskbank Campus - now Edinburgh College, Midlothian Campus
- Edinburgh Telford College - now Edinburgh College, Granton Campus
- Stevenson College Edinburgh - now Edinburgh College, Sighthill Campus
On 17 April 2012, Edinburgh's Jewel and Esk, Telford, and Stevenson colleges collectively submitted to the Scottish Government a business case for their merger into a single "Edinburgh" college.
The merger was approved by the Scottish Ministers, and came into force on 1 October 2012.
Edinburgh College values it’s rich history, especially those of the many legacy colleges that have come together over the years to better serve the learners of the Edinburgh and Lothian’s region.
