Capital fund for colleges

19th January 1996 at 00:00
The further education colleges have cause to be grateful to Scottish Enterprise for boosting training in at least one area before this week's spending axe fell.

Nine colleges are to share in a Pounds 480,000 fund to purchase equipment for training courses identified as priorities by local businesses. The capital equipment fund is part of the Training for the Future' package outlined in 1994.

The extra cash has had to be spread thinly, following the submission of a total of 69 bids by 32 colleges.

The successful colleges were Cambuslang, Perth, Angus, James Watt, West Lothian, Dumfries and Galloway, Coatbridge, Cumbernauld and Stow.
