Moving On Access

What is special about this course?

Moving On could be the right course for you if you are facing a challenging transition and would benefit from learning in a small supported group. The course is aimed at 15-17 year olds, is about taking responsibility for your own learning and supporting you to become a confident individual.

Entry requirements

There are no formal entry requirements, however you must be willing to work in a group and want to develop your personal and social skills. A link course is offered to interested students in January, so you may be able to attend a session before you start your full-time programme. Please contact the college to discuss entry to this programme.

You must be able to travel independently or make your own arrangements for travel.

The course has a practical focus on group work and confidence building during Semester 1, including Resiliency which aims to develop the skills needed to cope with the demands of college and an outdoor programme, which offers opportunities to work with others and enjoy new experiences. During Semester 2, you will focus on employability skills, have the opportunity to gain work experience and link with other areas of the college, if appropriate. Core Skills will also be part of your programme in Semester 2. You will work towards ASDAN, Duke of Edinburgh and John Muir Awards, focussing on teamwork and practical activity, as well as SQA units.
