The SCQF Partnership has just recruited the 100th school into its School Ambassador Programme. The SCQF School Ambassador programme offers schools the opportunity to learn more about the benefits of the SCQF and the wider ways in which it supports learners such as recognising wider achievement, developing Senior Phase learning pathways in line with the Developing the Young Workforce strategy and giving equality between vocational and academic qualifications.
The milestone was marked with a celebratory visit to the school by Development Officer for the SCQF Partnership, Donnie Wood.
Donnie, who manages the programme, said:
“The School Ambassador programme has been incredibly well received by schools across the nation and is helping to raise awareness about the SCQF to staff, pupils and parents. Understanding the range of learning available to pupils and how they relate is key for pupils and parents and using the Framework can really bring that to life. Having positive and forward thinking schools like Denny involved can only strengthen the School Ambassador programme further as we continue to engage schools across Scotland.”
Jamie Vaughn-Sharp, Acting Rector at the school added:
“We are delighted to be involved in the excellent SCQF School Ambassador programme. As a school we are committed to ensuring that all our young people can achieve their very best. The opportunities to develop pupil, staff and families’ knowledge about the wide range of courses on the SCQF which pupils can access is an extremely exciting development. By ensuring that the courses which we deliver best meet pupil need, we feel confident that we can develop our curriculum to ensure Denny High pupils are achieving whilst in school and successfully moving onto a positive destination beyond school.”
The SCQF School Ambassador Programme is free to join and is open to any secondary school in Scotland.
