Supported Vocational Programmes

Supported Vocational Programmes are for pupils attending Glasgow’s Additional Support for Learning schools, Complex Learning Needs schools and some Communication Disorder Units within mainstream schools. Young People work towards a vocational qualification appropriate to their academic level.

We offer School Vocational Programmes to give S3 and S4 pupils the opportunity to experience vocational training within a location they are comfortable with. College lecturers go out to schools and deliver tasters in hairdressing, beauty, construction, hospitality and IT skills. The hope is that the young person will progress onto one of the SVP programmes the following year.

We also offer college courses to S5 and S6 ASL pupils and the Options available are;

  • Skills for Work Construction Crafts - This option allows candidates to gain an insight into working on an indoor site within a college environment.
  • Skills for Work Construction Intermediate 1 - Experience six different trades within the construction industry.
  • Skills for Work Hairdressing Year 1 - Gain the knowledge and skills required to work within a Hairdressing Salon.

Enhanced Vocational Inclusion Programme (EVIP)
