In an exciting development, sparqs has entered into partnership with ENABLE Scotland to deliver Course Rep Training to students in supported education.
ENABLE has received funding from the Scottish Funding Council to support transition into employment for students in supported education and a key part of this is enabling the development of active, participating citizens. Being an effective course rep is an excellent way of learning how to be an active citizen and contribute to the wider student experience, so fits well within the remit of the project.
sparqs has trained all the Transitions Co-ordinators in quality and learning and teaching in Scotland’s colleges as well as in delivering the sparqs Course Rep Training for students in supported education.
All students trained will still receive sparqs certificates of attendance.
For those colleges not hosting an ENABLE Transitions Co-ordinator, sparqs is happy to deliver the training, or support delivery by the college.
ENABLE has been running Transitions to Employment in eight colleges since 2009 and is extending the service in 2013/14. Transitions Co-ordinators work as part of the college team, building relationships with lecturers and students; adding value to the curriculum; and supporting students to develop vocational skills, confidence, and experience before supporting their transition into employment.
Course Rep Training for students in supported education will be delivered by ENABLE’s Transitions Co-ordinators in the following colleges:
- Clyde College (Cardonald, Langside)
- Cumbernauld College
- Coatbridge College
- South Lanarkshire College
- Fife College (Elmwood)
- West College (Greenock, Reid Kerr)
- John Wheatley College
- City of Glasgow College
- Edinburgh College
- Ayrshire College (Kilmarnock)
- Dundee College
- West Lothian College
- Forth Valley College
- Borders College
- Perth College
- Aberdeen College
