Oban High School maps out its pupils’ fu­tures

The Oban Times - - News -

OBAN is one of the first high schools in Scot­land to take part in a school pro­gramme to map chil­dren’s ed­u­ca­tional jour­ney to adult­hood.

The Scot­tish Credit and Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Frame­work (SCQF) chose the school be­cause of the num­ber of ex­pe­ri­ences and qual­i­fi­ca­tions that are avail­able to pupils al­low­ing them to understand the qual­i­fi­ca­tions sys­tems in the county.

At an of­fi­cial launch on Thurs­day Novem­ber 18 in Glas­gow, the School Am­bas­sador Pro­gramme was launched so that young peo­ple can learn about which skills and qual­i­fi­ca­tions are re­quired in schools.

A spokesman for SCQF said: ‘Ben­e­fits in­clude sup­port­ing flex­i­ble learn­ing path­ways for peo­ple as they plan their learn­ing jour­ney, and un­der­stand­ing the many dif­fer­ent learn­ing pro­grammes that are on the frame­work and how th­ese can be com­pared against stan­dard aca­demic qual­i­fi­ca­tions.
