Since first opening its doors at Priory Lane, Dunfermline on 10th October 1899, as Lauder College, Carnegie College has continually adapted to the economic and social needs of the local community. It now stands at the forefront of further education in Scotland and is highly regarded as a major educational player, actively encouraging lifelong learning and learning for all - regardless of an individual's economic and social background.
Between innovative further education and the changing demands of industry and business in Fife, elsewhere in Scotland and beyond, Carnegie College stands in a crucial position:
It is an open door for young people who realise they need skills.
It is a source of theory and practical training for those who are to become the craftsmen and women of the future.
It works in partnership with business and industry to provide courses specifically designed for their employees so that they can adapt and change to meet competition.
It is a pathway to degree education.
It has become the key to new jobs and new careers for those whose previous jobs have disappeared through economic change.
It is the way back to work for many people who may not have worked for some time.
Education lies at the heart of both the Lauder and Carnegie stories both of whom firmly believed in the intrinsic link between education, employability, economic development and wealth creation. With this heritage at its heart and the synonymous link of Carnegie and Dunfermline, the new name seemed an obvious choice.
Like its namesake, Carnegie College is 100 committed to its vocational education, mission and heritage. Its focus on learning and skills development exists to equip students to gain employment and encourage an enterprising and pioneering attitude. We are equally committed to the educational, cultural and economic development of Dunfermline. With strong local business and community links, the college is here to support you in your learning now and in the future.
