SCHOLAR Study Guides

CfE book stackTeachers and students have told us how much they value having a printed Study Guide for their subject. We are now offering Study Guides covering CfE Higher and Advanced Higher Units/Contexts which can be purchased individually. The texts are designed to complement our online courses when students do not have access to the web - the material content is identical, but without the online interactivity that makes SCHOLAR so attractive for teaching and learning.

Order Study Guides online via and pay by purchase order (Scottish schools only) or by credit/debit card.


Glow is the world's first national intranet for education. It provides tools to underpin Curriculum for Excellence learning and teaching approaches.
