Wider Achievement

As well as succeeding academically in formal examinations , every young person should have the opportunity to acquire competency in a range of skills including critical thinking, problem solving, working with others and proficiency in ICT.

With this in mind, the vast majority of S6 students are taking part in wider achievement courses alongside ¬†their National Qualifications. The courses are designed to cover a range of vocational, professional and work related experiences. Have a look at this year’s courses below:
