Community Activity

Ayrshire College is dedicated to helping the local community. Spanning three councils and with state of the art facilities, the College is well positioned to offer funding initiatives, employability programmes and support local people.

We offer a range of programmes designed to help the local community develop the skills and experience needed to enter into employment.

We regularly get involved with local community initiatives, offering support in the form of programme delivery, mentoring or funding.
