Bank of England Governor Visits Dumfries and Galloway College

Dumfries and Galloway College was delighted to welcome Bank of England Governor, Andrew Bailey, to their Dumfries Campus on Friday June 17th.

The Governor was welcomed to the college by Principal Joanna Campbell, who highlighted the work undertaken at the further education institution, including their award-winning efforts on environmental programmes, such as winning the UK and Ireland’s Sustainability Institution of the Year award at the 2021 Green Gown Awards.

Mr Bailey then participated in a Q & A session with HND business students, providing an opportunity to explore current economic developments and gain first-hand knowledge from the Governor to assist students with their progression in education, led by Douglas Dickson, Vice Principal Learning, Skills and Student Experience.

Following this, Dumfries and Galloway College Board Member and Agent for Scotland for the Bank of England, Will Dowson, chaired a round table discussion between local businesses and Mr Bailey.

Principal Joanna Campbell said:

“It was a real honour to welcome the Governor of the Bank of England to our campus.

“In these challenging economic times, it was a tremendous opportunity for our students and local business to hear directly from Mr Bailey on matters directly affecting businesses and households.

“We are extremely grateful to the Governor for finding time in his busy schedule to visit us today.”
