£50m for Scottish college NPD

18 April 2012 The Scottish government is to grant £50m to the Kilmarnock College Campus project through the non-profit distributing (NPD) model.
First Minister Alex Salmond gave the the go-ahead to the procurement process for the construction of a new £50m campus on the site of the former Diageo premises in the town centre.

The investment will enable the construction of the new campus, with work expected to begin on site in August 2013. Other phases of development on the site will follow and include a mix of business and residential schemes on the 30-acre site.

There are currently 41 colleges in Scotland, although as part of the Scottish government's ongoing reforms to post-16 education, a number of mergers and enhanced forms of collaboration are planned.
