The City of Glasgow College (CGC) has enjoyed a close and fruitful partnership with the Armed Forces for many years. The College diligently supports Veterans, Reservists and Cadets as both students and employees, recognising their value and potential. With a campus by the edge of the Clyde, the College has a first-class marine training centre, which makes a unique contribution to the maritime sector.
As a result of this enduring relationship CGC signed the Armed Forces Covenant on Friday 4 November. As a testament to the College’s impact on Defence people in Scotland, the event was attended by representatives from all three Services (Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force).
Signing on behalf of the College was CGC’s Principal and Chief Executive, Dr Paul Little; whilst Brigadier Andy Muddiman ADC RM, the Regional Naval Commander for Scotland, the North of England and Northern Ireland, signed as the Defence representative.
Demonstrating his personal commitment to the Armed Forces, Dr Little was appointed to the senior rank of Honorary Captain in the Royal Navy Reserve in 2022. The prestigious appointment was made in recognition of his passion for the maritime sector and personal support of the Royal Navy.
