Highers and National 5


This full-time SCQF level 5 course is designed to provide opportunities for students to obtain entry to Further Education courses, but who currently lack the necessary qualifications.  There is flexibility to also study on a part-time basis.

 It is equally suitable for 16 to 19-year olds in school and Further Education, and adult learners, including returners to the workplace and those who wish to prepare for a career change.  Alongside progression into work, students can progress to further study at SCQF level 6, for example Highers Academy.

This National 5 Gateway programme gives students the opportunity to study a range of National 5s. This can be in Maths, English, Gaelic, Gàidhlig, Physics, Psychology, History, Administration and IT, and Care.
