The day will be comprised of a number of elements:
Kate Davidson, Senior Relationship Manager (Scotland, Northern Ireland & NE England)
We are delighted to have secured input from two Universities: Abertay and The University of Edinburgh. Both of these institutions will share current developments and the University perspective on undergraduate study. There will be a key focus on helping students develop the skills they will need to navigate the transition to university and for us all to consider what could be done to prepare students for what is coming while they are still at school.
Karen Glen, Curriculo Solutions, will provide an overview of The Introduction to Skills for Work Programme and explore how it could be integrated into schools.
Studying in the USA
Firstpoint USA, provide assistance with scholarships and admissions to USA universities. They will provide an overview of their service.
Community of Practice
Colleagues in the sector will share current developments in their schools – this will provide a catalyst for round table discussions.
