    Skills Academy

    Skills Academy is a core subject in S1 to S3. It is delivered by a range of teachers from a variety of curricular areas. Our aim is to make sure that a student's Skills Academy teacher is also their Registration Teacher.  Teachers draw on a range of approaches to meet the needs of students through carefully planned and well paced learning experiences. The aim is to provide a classroom climate of creativity and innovation, including

    • Active involvement in practical activities
    • Tasks which require a creative response
    • Opportunities to discuss, debate and present to an audience
    • Opportunities to learn about learning
    • Opportunities to analyse, explore, reflect upon their learning and progress and update their Student Profile via Didbook
    • Time to appropriate use of technology
    • Opportunities for collaborative and individual learning

    In the Senior Phase students can progress seek to gain qualifications in a range of Personal Achievement Awards and Skills for Life, Learning and Work courses. Course outlines and entry requirements are available in our Senior Phase Course Choice Booklet.
