Oracle held an information seminar today at The Lighthouse in Glasgow to promote the Oracle Academy programme to Scottish schools and colleges. I attended to show SQA's support for the programme and update people on the links between the two organisations. Over 60 teachers and lecturers attended.
Jane Richardson of Oracle gave a presentation [PPT] which described the Oracle Academy programme and my presentation [PPT] explained how SQA has supported the programme and described the links between SQA qualifications and Oracle awards.
The highlight of the day was the presentations from school pupils and college students who have undertaken the programme - and clearly enjoyed the experience.
So far, 13 Scottish schools and colleges have participated. There are places available on next year's programme. More information from Jane.
