All pupils in S2, S3, S4 & S5 will soon be choosing their courses for next year. In order to launch this process you are invited to a Course Information Evening for parents on Wednesday 18th January.
The purpose of this evening is to launch the course option form and the new course choice information booklet. We will also provide an opportunity to gather more information regarding the option choice process and national qualifications. There will also be an opportunity for our Partner Agencies to discuss the numerous pathways available to all pupils beyond school.
The format of the evening is planned as follows:
Welcome and introduction – Mr Hunter, Head Teacher
Presentation on course choice process – Mr Hutchison, Depute Head Teacher
Opportunity to browse the coursing marketplace
End of evening
A large part of the evening will be given over to an opportunity to browse the coursing marketplace. This will be staffed by subject specialists, allowing parents to ask detailed questions on courses being offered and potential progression pathways in the subjects.
We will be joined by representatives from Skills Development Scotland, Edinburgh College, LEAPS and other business partners who will be available to answer any questions in their specialist areas.
Course choice is a very important time for all pupils and I do hope that you can join us for this evening. Working together we can provide the maximum support for all pupils in choosing the most appropriate pathways towards their future.
