  • New Principal starts at Fife College

    Created: 18/04/2023

    Jim Metcalfe recently took up his new position as Principal of Fife College, following the announcement of his appointment last December.

    The former Chief Executive at the College Development Network succeeds Dr Hugh Hall, who stepped down as Principal after six years.

    Jim joins Fife College at an exciting time, with a groundbreaking new net-zero campus being built in Dunfermline and the College reporting the best ‘positive destination’ figures (those full-time successful students progressing to employment or further study) of any college in Scotland.

    The new Principal will be responsible for around 21,000 students and nearly 1,000 staff across five main campuses throughout Fife, as well as prison learning centres across the country, and will also oversee a successful commercial operation, conference and events centre, and university hub within an overall turnover of over £61 million.

    Jim’s focus will be raising the College’s profile in terms of education provision, skills training, community benefit and economic growth across the region. As a new Principal with a longstanding affinity with and knowledge of Fife and its communities, he is ready to hit the ground running and build on the great work currently undertaken by the College throughout the region.

    More information can be found on the Fife College website.
