A partnership between two of Scotland’s leading further education providers, @BordersCollege and Scotland’s Rural College (@SRUC), has allowed the development of a new programme, with the specific aim to support the economic recovery of establishments within the Tourism, Hospitality and Events sectors in Scotland.
Going into lockdown last March, right at the beginning of our Modern Apprentice contract for 2020/21, we were really unsure whether we would be able to sustain our numbers and achieve the growth we had anticipated. Luckily, our implementation of Smart Assessor meant that we were well prepared to move immediately to an end-to-end paperless programme. The results have been amazing!
Support, whether that be technical or emotional wellbeing, is essential for all students in the current climate and @BordersCollege has delivered this through a number of schemes put in place to help students meet their aspirations.
In October we described the new digital spoke being prepared in the Jedburgh Intergenerational School, and how we hoped to be able to utilise the latest smart screen and video conference technology to offer a greater range of courses in the Jedburgh area.
