Glasgow Kelvin College is a further education college in Glasgow, Scotland, which was formed 1 November 2013 from the merger of John Wheatley College, Stow College and North Glasgow College. There are five main campuses in the North East of the City and a community based learning network of around 23 centres supported by the College. The College was officially opened on Monday 4 November 2013 by Michael Russell, MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning.
The Principal is Alan Sherry who was previously Principal at John Wheatley College. The Chair is Irving Hodgson who served on the North Glasgow Board prior to the merger. The College is seeking to promote Excellence, Progression and Enterprise through its curriculum. To support this work the College is the only Scottish member of the Gazelle Group.
