Studying a college course while you are still at school is a great way to add to your qualifications and to kick start your career. You will:
- discover what life at college is like
- experience new ways of learning
- try out a career and decide it if it is right for you
- learn how to work on your own
- pick up practical skills for work and life after school
- gain a qualification that employers recognise
- boost your UCAS or college application
A lot of our courses are practical and hands-on, like hairdressing, construction, sound production and maritime skills. You will get the chance to practice new skills in our fantastic college facilities and be taught by lecturers with years of experience in their trade or profession.
Our Foundation Apprenticeships also include a work placement where you can learn valuable new skills and find out what the world of work is really like.
All of our courses are SQA certificated and if you pass, it will appear on your SQA Certificate along with your Nationals, Highers and Advanced Highers.
