School visits programme

As part of the school PSE programme we would be delighted to arrange a visit, or a series of visits, to your school to raise awareness of the wide range of opportunities available at Inverness College UHI.

We value our relationship with schools and strive to create quality partnerships with staff, young people and their parents or carers. Our Schools team has embraced the Developing the Young Workforce agenda which complements our existing Vocational Pathways, Highers and SCQF level 7 provision. We can work with you on a needs-led basis to provide comprehensive information and guidance to your pupils and have a range of outreach options which fit well with the Curriculum for Excellence. Young people can develop the following Career Management Skills as detailed in the Career Education Standard :

    Develop personal awareness around likes, dislikes, strengths and weaknesses;

    Gather, interpret and analyse career, learning and labour market information;

    Explore options in learning and work and relate this to personal priorities and strengths; and

    Take action to build a career pathway.
