Figures from the Scottish Funding Council’s report on college performance indicators for 2015/16 showed that the college had an 86.9 per cent success rate for further and higher education courses across the combined subject areas - 16 per cent above the sector average.

The college was re-accredited for STEM Assured Status in 2016, and its new £83 million Falkirk campus, which is due to open in 2019, will have a strong focus on STEM provision with state-of-the-art learning environments.

Dr Ken Thomson, principal of Forth Valley College said: “Across the board, our performance indicators also show our commitment to offering the best possible learning experiences for our students and delivering the skills required by their future employers – truly ‘Making Learning Work’ for everyone.”
