A College and School Partnership Programme
The Borders College Schools Academy provides an integrated approach to education, where senior phase pupils are given the opportunity to learn a range of vocational skills, both practical and academic. These provide them with a vocational pathway on to further and higher education at a range of different levels.
The Borders College Schools Academy will widen senior pupils’ experience of education and broaden their horizons, whilst learning skills that will help them in their future career choices.
Pupils will be taught in college or school using a blended learning method. This may include online, as well as face to face teaching by specialist college lecturers, who will liaise closely with the school. The subjects are taught as part of the senior phase timetable.
Career Progression Opportunities
Senior pupils who are successful in gaining their qualification through this programme and have satisfactory references will be offered a full-time place on a related course the following year.
Most of the Schools Academy courses are based on Scottish Qualification Authority National Qualifications at a range of levels. Successful completion of Unit Assessments or full National Certificates will appear on SQA Certificates along with other qualifications attained at school.
