Business Courses for School Pupils


We talk to employers regularly to ensure that our programmes prepare students for employment in roles within business, administration or accounting. We also ensure that study skills are developed as well for those who aspire to progress to further or higher education in the future.

All our School-College Partnership courses can lead to progression to full time study here at UHI Perth or elsewhere. Career options locally are very positive, by 2028, the largest employment growth in Perth and Kinross is forecast to be admin and support services.


Business and Administration

There is high demand for individuals with enthusiasm and passion to make an impact in a wide range of business and administration roles. Contemporary organisations require employees who can think on their feet, work out solutions to problems, be ready to work effectively as part of a team, be creative, be innovative, see the bigger picture, lead on projects and quite simply make a difference.

Organisations in all industries need staff who can demonstrate these skills meaning that employment opportunities are varied and exciting through both the public and private sector.


There are many opportunities to pursue a career in the area of accounting. There is a skills gap nationally and a wide range of careers can be taken within this field. Our Financial Accounting programme prepares students to take the first step and could lead to a Trainee position within an organisation or an Accounts Assistant role. It is also a great grounding for those who wish to continue to study accounting at College or university.

A previous student said: “The book-keeping part of this course really prepared me for University as in first year I was ahead of the game, having already covered much of the financial accounting course in S6 with UHI Perth. The S6 course was really valuable and definitely helped me in my subsequent studies.”
