Schools Partnerships

Rowan Maguire is the key contact for schools’ partnerships – these are courses designed for pupils who would like to study a course at college whilst still at school.  We have more than 1,000 school students studying in over 80 courses including Accounting and Financial Services, Engineering, Social Services and Health Care, Professional Cookery, Creative Digital Media, Hair & Beauty and more.  

Due to ongoing social distancing and infection control measures, our schools partnership courses for academic year 20-21 will not have as many options as previous years. This decision has been taken to ensure the health and safety of all of our students and staff. It has not been possible to safely offer the same opportunities this year, although we are already planning for 2021/22 and hope to be able to offer a full range of courses then. Please revisit these pages for updates throughout the year or speak with your guidance teacher if you are considering a Senior Phase option.

Scotland's Biggest Parent Event

Scotland’s Biggest Parents’ Events are a series of four event broadcasts, which allow parents, carers and guardians to hear about the things that matter to them right now.  They provide parents and carers with information about options and pathways for young people, including where they can go to make informed judgements to support their young person's next steps.

With input from a range of experts covering topics such as exams, mental health, apprenticeships, skills development and pathways into industry, the events are also beneficial to young people themselves and aim to provide a message of reassurance and optimism at this challenging time.

  • PATHWAYS TO PRIORITY INDUSTRIES - delivered in partnership with Skills Development Scotland, provides an opportunity to learn about Scotland’s predicted employment by key sector from a range of industry experts about the types of jobs and skills that are in demand.
  • #NOWRONGPATH TO INDUSTRY - features the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, as well as SQA, Young Scot, employers and young people.  The broadcast is part of DYW's wider #NoWrongPath campaign, which aims to highlight the options that are available to young people and to show that exams results are not necessarily the key to unlocking future success.
