Winter Leavers' Taster Programme
The Winter Leavers' Taster Programme is for S5 pupils who have not reached the legal age for leaving school in August. It is ideal for pupils who demonstrate a willingness to learn, but for whom school is no longer a suitable enviroment. Pupils must be eligible to leave school in December 2013 and must be 16 years old or will turn 16 before the end of February 2014.
Pupils should apply directly to the College. You must supply a letter of permission to attend college from school coupled with a school referencewhich covers attendance, attitude, behaviour, maturity and reason for leaving school. A letter supporting your application from a parent, guardian or carer must also be supplied.
