Important notice image

Updated 04/09/2023

EIS-FELA, Unison and Unite are the trade unions for lecturing and support staff at Borders College. As a result of a national pay dispute, they announced they have asked their members to undertake a rolling programme of strike action in colleges across Scotland. 

At Borders College, the affected dates currently announced are 7th September and 26th September. 

We want to reassure you the college will remain open and provide learning for the vast majority of students. However, a minority of lessons could be disrupted. If a lesson is affected, please use our college library facilities to keep up to date with your college work. 

Should you be in receipt of a bursary and your lecturer is on strike, please be assured this will not impact on your payments.

As always keep up to date with your college work and in particular any outstanding assessments as these will be marked.
