INVERCLYDE Learning Partnership In Running For Top Award

A PARTNERSHIP between a number of local schools and Inverclyde Council is in the running for a prestigious prize at this year’s Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) Star Awards.

The Senior Phase Group, involves Fifth and Sixth Year pupils from Port Glasgow High School, neighbouring St Stephen's High School, and Notre Dame High School in Greenock working with the council’s Community Learning and Development team, is a finalist in the Partnership of the Year Category.

The group developed an alternative curriculum for pupils unable to achieve through a traditional school setting. Pupils attending the group then had the opportunity to complete SQA Personal Development and Volunteering Skills Awards, with the aim of increasing attendance and identifying where their needs could be linked to achievement and development of skills.

The SQA Star Awards are unique, recognising both the individuals who work towards SQA qualifications and the organisations that deliver them; rewarding those that have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to learning.

The finalists from the Senior Phase Group have been invited along with their colleagues to join other nominees from across the country at a ceremony at the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh on Friday 3 November for a night of celebration.

They and their fellow finalists will be recognised and rewarded for their outstanding achievements and contributions to the success stories that have taken place within Scottish education and training over the past 12 months.

SQA Chief Executive, Dr Janet Brown, said: “The quality of the nominations for this year’s awards is outstanding. We have seen first-hand the dedication and commitment, shown by the candidates studying for SQA qualifications, and the passion and ingenuity of the teachers, lecturers, and specialists delivering our courses across the country, throughout the UK, and indeed around the world. I congratulate all the finalists on making it this far in the competition and wish them the very best of luck on the night!

“The SQA Star Awards provide a fantastic opportunity to recognise learners for their achievements, and also acknowledge the outstanding work of our centres –- the schools, colleges, training providers, and employers who deliver our qualifications. The awards ceremony gives us a chance to thank those who give our learners the guidance, support, and encouragement they need to realise their potential.”

The SQA Star Awards will be hosted by TV and radio presenter Kaye Adams and are supported by a number of sponsors, including Education Scotland, the SCQF Partnership, and Skills Development Scotland.
