School College Partnership (SCP) Courses
Are you thinking of studying at college whilst you are still at school? If so, then one of the School College Partnership courses could be for you! Edinburgh College offers a range of opportunities for S4-S6 pupils wishing to attend college on a part time basis whilst still at school. These courses can provide 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.
Foundation Apprenticeships allow pupils to gain an industry recognised qualification by attending college 2 afternoons a week alongside an employer led work placement. Foundation Apprenticeships are available in Financial Services, IT&Digital Services and Engineering at SCQF Level 6.
