What Next? Course Planning for Senior Pupils

Welcome to the 2017 Edition of 'What Next?', our course planning guide for current S4 and S5 pupils going into S5 and S6. If you are a current S2 pupil going into S3 then you want 'Which Course?' instead. If you are a current S3 pupil going into S4 then you want 'Which Qualification?'.

One of the aims of producing this guide is to help students at the end of S4 and S5 make informed decisions about their future educational needs and plan appropriate pathways to employment, training and further study. I hope this guide will provide the necessary information on a wide range of courses available in school and will also give guidance to those students going on to Further and Higher Education, to those seeking employment, or considering training programmes.
