The Scottish Government launched the Social Impact Pledge as part of their initiative to tackle inequalities and reform how public services deliver services, and to ensure that participation and empowerment are at the centre of everything the public sector does.
The Social Impact Pledge asks public sector organisations across Scotland, including Colleges, to commit to increasing their social impact by making a public commitment to changing 3 aspects of their current operations or policies. The Pledge links into the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015.
Colleges have been asked to identify 3 commitments to improve their current engagement or policies which deliver benefits to their local communities.
The Pledge can be renewed annually, with at least one of the commitments being different from the previous year, thus ensuring the College continues to challenge itself to deliver more social value.
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.
The College's three pledges are showcased on the Communities Channel Scotland website which is the main portal for information about what the pledge is and how to get involved.
