Testimonials

The Award Programme continues to have an impact on our digital learning in school as we link up with other schools using the programme through digital media and can share good practise and developments.

The award recognises the hard work by staff in our school but more importantly, the opportunities for all learners to gain the digital skills needed for the 21st century.

We are exceptionally pleased and immensely proud that our strong commitment to digital technology and innovative teaching has been recognised.   We do not view digital technology as a substitute for excellent classroom teaching, but we do see how it can enhance the learning environment for all our pupils.   All schools should ensure their pupils have a strong grasp of the educational power of digital platforms so that they are well prepared for life after school.

The Digital Schools Programme is a fantastic example of how we, as an industry, are committed to supporting the next generation and ensuring that all young people acquire the skills they need to thrive in the modern digital workplace. We are proud to be part of this exciting initiative and look forward to seeing how it further enables students in Scotland to better prepare for the world of work and keep Scotland at the forefront of the current digital revolution.
