Its aim is to support learning in a one-to-one or small group setting, with a focus on Broad General Education (BGE) and all levels ups to National 5. 

This support can cover a range of subjects and specialisms, depending on the requirements of each individual learner.

In addition, our outreach support offers the following tailored programmes:

 

Wellbeing Groups

  • Anger Management
  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Communication skills
  • Strategies
  • Self esteem
  • Employability

 

Scottish Studies

The Scottish Studies Award provides opportunities for learners to develop their knowledge and understanding of Scotland — its people, languages, society, culture, natural environment and heritage — and to make connections across the curriculum.

The Award provides recognition for learners who choose to make these connections by studying aspects of three subject areas in a Scottish context:

  • 'Scots Language';
  • 'People and Society: Comparing and Contrasting'
  • and 'Rural Species - Identification and Habitats'

In addition, the mandatory 'Scotland in Focus' unit provides learners with scope for personalisation and choice as they choose to study an aspect of Scotland in which they have a particular interest.

The Scottish Studies Award delivered by the Inclusion and Wellbeing Service (Secondary) is available at SCQF levels 3 and 4, with the opportunity for progression on to SCQF levels 5 and 6.
