Carnegie College (formerly Lauder College) is a further education college based in Halbeath, Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. It was established in 1899, with financial support from George Lauder. In 2007, it was renamed Carnegie College in honour of Andrew Carnegie, the steel magnate and philanthropist born in Dunfermline. It has around 11,000 students every year and offers over 350 programs at various levels, from introductory and national qualifications to higher national standards and degrees, delivered through a collegiate model of six schools.
The college is one of West Fife's largest employers and contributors to the local economy, employing almost 600 people with an annual turnover of £22 million. It is amongst the most financially independent colleges in Scotland, with just 45% of its funding coming from the Scottish Funding Council. Carnegie College is a statutory corporation and registered charity under Scottish law and in 2007-08 had a gross income of £23,991,000.
Executive Management Team 
The Principal is Professor Bill Mcintosh, supported by a senior management team of Janet Mccauslin, David Neilson and Ian Allison. Recent restructuring has brought in an additional layer of management, called 'Heads of School'; each Head of School is responsible for three or four Assistant Heads of School. This means that the College is co-ordinated by some 30 managers, a senior management team, and the Principal. The Board of Management, chaired by Graham Bowstead, oversees all decisions made by the Principal. The Board also contains representatives from the staff: the teaching staff are represented by Mr Graham Watt, and support staff are represented by Ms Elizabeth Buchanan.
It is near the M90 motorway at the east end of Dunfermline and can be reached from most parts of Fife, Kinross-shire and Clackmannanshire. The college has smaller campuses throughout west Fife, including the former Royal Dockyard at Rosyth. It also works in partnership with West Fife Enterprises, a local training initiative based in the West Fife Villages.
A recent report by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education gave the College a high standard of review. The College Review awarded seven grades of Very Good and one grade of Good, with special praise for access and inclusion, guidance, quality improvement and leadership. In the Subject Review there were grades of Very Good in every subject area, with outstanding success for Computing (7 Very Good), Art and Design (5 Very Good), Care (5 Very Good) and Science (4 Very Good).
Name Change 
The college changed its name from Lauder College to Carnegie College in November 2007. The change of name was given formal approval by the Scottish Government on Friday 30 November 2007. Despite a high level of support, criticisms were raised and debate was held in the letters page of the Dunfermline Press.
