Student Finance Guide 2015

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh have produced a practical new guide on student finance for 16 to 19 year olds in Scotland considering studying HNC/Ds at college or degree courses at university.

A copy of the guide is below.

This has been developed in collaboration with the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS), NUS Scotland, Lothians Equal Access Programme for Schools (LEAPS), Gateway Shared Services, S6 pupils and university students.

The guide provides an overview of the key aspects of student finance in Scotland to ensure students have all the facts before they apply for higher education.

Connected Learning

East Lothian Secondary Schools now offer wireless learning for all young people. This means that young people can use school or personal devices to access a very wide range of learning materials online. This new opportunity creates important new responsibilities for young people.

At Preston Lodge we’ve come up with a guide, and brought in the web app Airhead, to support the introduction of Connected Learning to our classrooms. The following videos summarise our guide to Connected Learning and explain how to set up Airhead on your mobile device:
