We recognise the importance of supporting young people into positive destinations working in partnership with local colleges and other key partners. The School College Partnership programme supports learners to study vocational qualifications at S.C.Q.F Levels 4 to 7 whilst also studying their school subjects. Key partners supporting curriculum delivery include Fife College.
Fife College programmes are delivered in Bell Baxter, college or a combination of both ensuring that all young people have access to the best available resources to learn and achieve in their chosen programme. College programmes are aimed at providing pupils with the necessary skills and knowledge to progress to the next S.C.Q.F level either in a subsequent year at school or to facilitate progression to full-time education at college or university.
The enhanced curriculum partnership offer available at Bell Baxter provides young people with increased learning opportunities linked to career pathways. Many of the options available are aligned to local, regional and national demand based on Labour Market Intelligence (L.M.I) and Skills Development Scotland Regional Skills Assessments.
Studying a School/College Partnership course enables young people to gain skills, confidence, qualifications (including Foundation Apprenticeships) and access to vocational pathways outwith the traditional school curriculum.
In S6 opportunities are also available for young people to study Open University courses in preparation for higher education.
