School, College Partnership

UHI Perth works closely with all Senior Secondary schools in Perth and Kinross to respond to local and national employment opportunities through both vocational and academic paths.

As one of the largest partners in UHI we are able to offer a wide range of areas of study from entry level to post graduate.

The School College Partnership allows pupils a greater choice in a variety of subject areas, to develop practical, vocational and academic skills. The courses are delivered in college as well as schools, and some programmes are on-line. Being involved with studying at college as part of your school timetable, makes it easier when the time comes for the transition from school to further learning or employment.

Over the last 5 years we have had between 400 and 500 pupils from S3 to S6 attending our courses every year.

Whilst attending courses at college your attendance and progress is monitored and reported back to your school, as part of your normal curriculum.

All of our School College Partnership courses can lead to further study at College, University or to employment.There are many benefits to undertaking a course while still at school, and doing so has helped a large number of young people on the path to a successful career.

If you're considering a Foundation Apprenticeship for your senior years at school, read more about them over on our blog.

We caught up with UHI Perth Business Lecturer, Caroline McCall, to find out how her FA Business Skills students got on when learning outside of the classroom!
