Oban High School maps out its pupils’ futures
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.
