At Edinburgh College we are committed to ensuring that our students are prepared for a successful future. Our Schools College Provision provides a range of opportunities for S4-S6 pupils to attend college on a part time basis whilst still attending school. These include:
  • A Dedicated Schools College Courses Offering which provides pupils with a range of educational opportunities and specialist subjects that can be added into their existing timetable, all of which have clear progression routes to full time college courses.
  • An Academies Programme​ which smoothes the transition between school, college, university and employment.  This is a partnership initiative which is designed to improve pupils’ prospects of moving on to further or higher education and boosts employability through a programme of work experience with industry experts.
  • Foundation Apprenticeships which allow pupils to gain an industry recognised qualification, attending college 2 afternoons a week alongside and employer led work placement.
  • For pupils who may not be considered for mainstream college courses, our Future Steps Programme provides a flexible approach to learning based qualifications and experience.  Pupils have the opportunity to complete a 12 week placement and have an allocated worker to provide support throughout their learning journey.
