200 more student places at Borders College

Borders College is pivotal to our local economy.

But the SNP Government have delivered a real terms cut to their budget.

This cut could result in the loss of 165 student places and limit services at the college.

The number of student applications for next year are already at a higher level than they were at this stage last year.

I am calling on the SNP to allocate funding for the Borders College to deliver an extra 200 student places so that they can continue to provide opportunities for young people across the Scottish Borders.
