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.
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. The list of currently available courses are outlined in the table below.
|Advanced Higher||Higher||Revised Higher||Intermediate 1/2||Nat 5||Level 3|
|Geography, Geology and Environmental Science|
|Art & Design (Textiles)|
|ESOL (English for speakers of other languages)|
