13 Jenna Makein NC Fashion Design and Manufacture Employed as a visual merchandiser at Marks and Spencer The course was great. I really enjoyed the mix of business and design which catered for everyone; those keen to go to university and those keen on heading straight into work. Part of the course included a placement at House of Fraser with their Visual Merchandiser. This was a fantastic experience and it made me realise that Visual Merchandising was definitely the job for me. Fife College Prospectus 2015/16 13

17 SPECIAL FEATURE Working with Employers to Improve Career Opportunities and Pathways Developing the right skills for the right job is essential that s why we work with partners such as Fife Council and Skills Development Scotland (SDS) and liaise with employers in the Fife area and beyond to help our students enter their chosen careers more quickly and become more successful in the job market. By involving employers in education we can help address the situation where students find they are unable to get a job when they leave education because they lack experience and haven t built up the skills they need to help them secure employment. Our fantastic links with a wide variety of employers ensure that Fife College students are job ready and have defined pathways to employment and career progression after their studies. Fife College Prospectus 2015/16 17

18 SPECIAL FEATURE HOT NEWS A competitive science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) skills base is vital to our future as a knowledge intensive economy. As the economy rebalances towards manufacturing investment and exports, major growth sectors require these skills. CBI March 2014 Fife College Leading on the Fife STEM Strategy to Provide the Skills and Qualifications to Build a Successful and Prosperous Economy. What is STEM? STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. STEM industries in Fife are: Advanced manufacturing Heavy engineering (bridge & ship-building) Energy, especially renewables engineering Science technicians (hospital labs, research and development, nursing and other health posts Engineering maintenance STEM industries have been identified by the Scottish Government as critical for Scotland s future economic success. There are many opportunities in this area for young people with the skills, qualifications and enthusiasm to follow a career in these industries. Global organisations such as GE Oil and Gas will see 50% of its Scottish workforce retire in the next few years, and are actively engaged in recruiting to ensure they have a skilled workforce which will support their future growth and success. Other organisations are also concerned there will be skills shortages in years to come due to an ageing workforce. Fife College is taking a lead role in the development of a STEM strategy and working with key partners to provide a solution to this skills deficit. This will ensure that the courses we offer reflect the needs of the economy and include the skills required to support the growth of STEM industries. 18 Fife College Prospectus 2015/16

19 The Life Sciences sector has a turnover in excess of 3.1bn per year. DID YOU KNOW Life Sciences employs around 32,000 people across 600+ organisations in Scotland. Fife College Pilots New Foundation Apprenticeships Fife College is piloting a new foundation apprenticeship programme with 50 pupils in five Fife schools. This will offer pupils the opportunity to take part in vocational learning while in fulltime education, boosting their employability skills and increasing their chances of moving into the workplace upon leaving school. As opportunities grow in engineering, there will be a greater need for more skilled people to work in this sector. Developing these skills and vocational competencies at school will open up more options for pupils when they leave secondary school as they will have the choice of pursuing a Modern Apprenticeship, going to college or university, or moving in to employment with an increased confidence in their skills for the workplace. Engineering is a rewarding career that can open doors and has the potential to take employees anywhere in the world. Very few girls in Fife choose careers in engineering in spite of the strong engineering sector in Fife. In FMC Technologies (a global organisation with a site in Dunfermline) 37% of their workforce is female, although hardly any of these are from Fife or Scotland. This pilot also aims to encourage more women into the sector and improve awareness of engineering careers. Fife College Supporting the Life Sciences Sector to Address Future Skills Shortages Over the past few years Fife College and NHS Lothian have developed an innovative partnership to deliver training and education programmes in laboratory science from a unique, purpose-built training facility within St John s Hospital, West Lothian. Working together, we have developed a twoyear training programme for S5/S6 school pupils so that alongside first-rate practical skills, they also gain nationally recognised qualifications and invaluable industry awareness through studying in a real-life working laboratory. Successful completion of Year One will provide pupils with the required qualifications to join a Modern Apprenticeship programme within the Life Science sector or NHS. Completion of the HNC Applied Science in Year Two allows direct articulation into second year of many related college and university degree programmes. Fife College Prospectus 2015/16 19

20 SPECIAL FEATURE The new campus is due to open in Fife College - Leading the Way in the Implementation of Exciting New Career Routes Fife College has been working with partners to develop opportunities for students to build their work readiness and develop the right blend of knowledge, skills and experience they will need to be successful in their chosen field. An example of this is the Integrated Career Pathway for Hospitality and Tourism which will be available at the new Fife College Levenmouth Campus. School pupils in S3 and S4 will be able to study an SVQ in Hospitality at Level 1 whilst still at school as their college curriculum option. This will serve as a pre-apprenticeship course with entry into VQ 2 Modern Apprentice with Fife College. After a year of employment with Fife College as a fulltime Modern Apprentice, with all of the apprentices workbased learning taking place in the College s Levenmouth Bistro, supporting progression to wider career opportunities in tourism. Similarly, they aim to open up new career routes for school leavers in Care, Engineering, Computing Networking, and Hair and Beauty as well as progression routes into further study with Fife College. 20 Fife College Prospectus 2015/16

24 QUALIFICATIONS EXPLAINED The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) is a way of comparing the wide range of Scottish qualifications. It covers achievements such as those from school, college and university as well as many workbased qualifications. The level of a qualification indicates the level of difficulty and the number of credit points indicates the length of time it takes to complete. One SCQF credit point represents an average of 10 hours of learning time. Every Scottish university and college is now using SCQF levels and credit points to describe their courses. The table opposite will give you a quick and easy to understand guide to the different SCQF levels. 24 Fife College Prospectus 2015/16

26 QUALIFICATIONS EXPLAINED At Fife College, we provide a range of courses at all levels to suit your individual needs and circumstances, offering useful and relevant education whatever your starting point. From Introductory and Access courses to HNC, HND and Degree level courses, you can be sure to find something suited to your own ability. Skills for Work Our Skills for Work courses are designed specifically for school pupils. You would attend college one day a week to achieve a qualification similar in level to a National 3. These courses help you develop career skills and awareness, learn about college life and the pathways available to help you on your way to your future career goals. Highers Highers can improve your future job prospects, help you move onto further study at HNC/HND level or simply allow you to gain some new skills and qualifications. Many of these are offered either for daytime study or as evening classes within the college, and sometimes as transitional day release programmes. Further Education Access and Introductory Courses Access and Introductory courses are the perfect stepping stone for those with no formal qualifications who want to progress to higher levels of study. National Certificate (NC), National Qualification (NQ) and City & Guilds These courses are designed for school leavers and typically last one year. These courses can be used as a stepping stone to employment or on to further study at HNC and HND level. Higher Education Higher National Certificate (HNC) HNCs are normally offered through the equivalent of one year s full-time study and are generally recognised as the equivalent of your first year of study at university. With the completion of an HNC, you have the option of progressing through to an HND, degree or employment. Higher National Diploma (HND) HNDs tend to last two years if done as a full-time course. If you re progressing through from HNC, you can go straight into the second year of the HND meaning you will only need one year to complete your qualification. HNDs are generally recognised as your second year of university study and give you the option of progression through to a degree or employment. Degrees There are many routes to studying a degree with Fife College. Working alongside partner universities, we can offer a great range of degrees right on your doorstep and articulation routes to other university courses with the benefit of studying the first two years locally. Have a look at our degree section on pages for more information. 26 Fife College Prospectus 2015/16

27 Daniel Croft NQ Professional Catering HNC Professional Cookery Now employed as Commis Chef at the Dakota, Edinburgh I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Fife College, I learned so much and it has given me the opportunity to get a job doing what I want to do. I continue to learn every day. It s very hard work, but as the Head Chef says; you get out what you put in, and I m really enjoying every minute of it. It s great to be able to develop the skills that I learned at College - basic knife skills and cooking techniques have given me the background needed to keep learning and improving as a chef.

28 QUALIFICATIONS EXPLAINED MODERN APPRENTICESHIPS (MAs) Our Modern Apprentices are our managers and directors of the future. Ian Farrow, General Manager Score (Europe) Limited Did you know Fife College trains over 700 Modern Apprentices each year the largest MA Contract for a college 28 Fife College Prospectus 2015/16

29 QUALIFICATIONS EXPLAINED Modern Apprenticeships (MAs) Modern Apprenticeships are now very popular with employers. As well as creating a more responsive, motivated workforce through broader, transferable skills and self-learning, it may also reduce staff turnover by the implementation of career progression plans. Modern Apprenticeships are available in a variety of areas from motor vehicle, computing and life sciences to customer services, engineering, and many more. They offer over 16s the opportunity to train for a nationally-recognised qualification whilst being in paid employment. An MA is ideal for ambitious people starting out in their career. All of our MA courses are industry-developed to include the skills required for success in that profession. By taking the Modern Apprentice route, school leavers can earn sooner, but still work towards a qualification whilst in employment and earning a salary. So, if you want to combine study with work and earn a regular wage then this might be the perfect route for you. If you don t get a Modern Apprenticeship at your first attempt, then don t be disheartened. Studying on a full-time basis can often help you to further develop your knowledge and skills, providing you with an interview opportunity and great experiences to put on your CV. Fife College can also bring together students who are looking for an apprenticeship with employers who are looking to fill apprenticeship vacancies. Employers often come to us looking for our best students to recruit as apprentices as they know that our successful students will have the required level of knowledge to enter their industry and the commitment to pursue their chosen career. We can also help you with interview preparation. Studying for a Modern Apprenticeship was definitely the right choice for me enabling me to earn a good salary and qualifications. The Weir Group has been extremely supportive and has opened up a diverse range of opportunities to me which have helped me gain a wealth of experience. The theory and practical skills gained at Fife College have also been invaluable. I am delighted to be the first person to complete this apprenticeship and it s good to know that there are many more students about to follow in my footsteps. I look forward now to a great career in the renewable energy industry and to a promising future. Allan Wilson UK s First Wind Energy Modern Apprentice A skilled workforce is vital for our success and apprentices are central to this. Score encourages and promotes ongoing education and training, supporting our employees to continue on to future study and careers. In fact, fifty-percent of our Board members started with us as Modern Apprentices our apprentices are our managers and directors of the future.

34 STUDYING TO DEGREE LEVEL Make Fife College Your First Step Towards University If you want to go to university, coming to college can be the ideal stepping stone. It allows you to enter at a level that you feel comfortable at and progress one step at a time. It can also help you gain independent study and research skills in a supportive environment. We offer a range of degree courses, in partnership with highly regarded universities, as well as defined articulation routes to other degree programmes. Articulation Routes An articulation route is a pathway between an HNC or an HND and a degree programme, usually agreed between a college and a university. There are also a number of routes into degree programmes that are not published but can be identified from student applications. These articulation routes mean that you can study an HNC or HND with Fife College then progress directly on to a degree course at university; usually with entry into second or third year, providing a more affordable option of studying locally for the first two years. By successfully completing years one and two at college you will achieve an HNC and HND respectively. So if a career opportunity should arise, you can exit your studies at that point with a recognised qualification and skills relevant to the job market. You may also have the opportunity to continue your degree level studies on a part-time basis. Contact us to discuss your options. Studying for a degree locally was a great option as it was less expensive than studying away from home. I was delighted that Fife College offered such a great progression route, allowing me to complete my degree up to honours level. I m now at University in Glasgow studying a post-graduate degree in Secondary Business Education and enjoying the student life. It is hard work but I know it will all be worth it in the end.
