That the Parliament congratulates South Lanarkshire College as it takes part in a new pilot to help tackle gender-based violence; notes that the college is only one of two colleges in Scotland to take part in the charter, which was created by EmilyTest, a Scottish charity working to improve prevention, intervention and support concerning gender-based violence in further and higher education; recognises that South Lanarkshire College has been incredibly proactive in undertaking work in this area to facilitate a safe environment for all staff and students and welcomes that its efforts have extended into the wider community through participation in local events and activities, and considers that, through such efforts, everyone can share the hope that, one day, the charter will be rolled out across all colleges and universities.
