Young people from across Scotland are being offered access to a national, on-line education resource providing the opportunity to:
- participate in an extensive series of live early-evening study support webinar lessons from their own homes
- benefit from specialist teacher input during the live, real-time webinar lessons
- access subject specific resources in advance of the webinar lessons
This offer seeks to complement the education provision being provided by schools and local authorities across Scotland. The e-learning National Offer will provide free, live, interactive webinar lessons in an extensive range of subjects for Level 5 and Higher courses.
e-Sgoil Study Support webinar lessons are scheduled to run for a period of eight weeks in the first instance and employ a ‘flipped learning’ approach, where participants undertake prior learning using supplied resources before attending a real-time 45-minute webinar, hosted in Glow. All e-Sgoil webinar lessons are delivered by subject specialists, assisted by a second teacher.
The following courses are on offer: Business Management, Chemistry, Computing Science, Eachdraidh, English, French, Gaelic, Gàidhlig, History, Mandarin, Maths, Music, Physics, RMPS and Spanish. Digital study skills lessons are also offered.
This study support provision is a key strand of a comprehensive National e-Learning offer which includes vacancy and supply cover to meet the staffing requirements of schools across the country, a programme of remote learning opportunities for interrupted learners – including accredited courses in Literacy and Numeracy – and a diverse range of curriculum enrichment activities, involving a number of external partners.
