Courses and Materials

The SCHOLAR programme offers subjects which provide a route into careers in science, engineering, business and modern languages. For further study, SCHOLAR programmes articulate with courses at Heriot-Watt University and partner further education colleges.

SCHOLAR provides an integrated set of materials and services which meet the needs of both students and their teachers. These resources include: 

  • comprehensive online interactive learning materials, activities, assessments and revision packs;
  • access to online communities, resources, monitoring information and information tools;
  • study guides which contain key reference materials and learning activities;
  • tutor notes with valuable curriculum and planning information. 

The number of courses has increased considerably since the launch of SCHOLAR in 2000 and now stands at over 30. Thanks to funding from Education Scotland and our member authorities there is planned development of further courses.
