Ayrshire College celebrated its tenth anniversary with a special dinner for invited guests who have played a prominent role in the college’s success over the years.

The celebration on Thursday, February 15 brought together current staff as well as board members, key stakeholders and industry partners to reflect on the college’s journey following the merger of Ayr College, Kilmarnock College, and James Watt College a decade ago.

The celebration also provided an excellent opportunity for Ayrshire College students to further develop their skills and learning, with photography student Martyn Cain taking photographs throughout the evening and music student Evan Keen providing the entertainment.

Guests enjoyed a three-course meal, prepared and served by the college's hospitality students at the Kilmarnock Campus, while reflecting on the successes of Ayrshire College.

College principal Angela Cox also spoke about the exciting opportunities for the college in the coming years.

She said: “Ayrshire College is proud of the partnership approach we have fostered with our local employers and stakeholders over the last 10 years and our response to the challenges and opportunities within our region.

"We will continue to build on these strong foundations and enable our industries and communities across Ayrshire to thrive.”
