Ayrshire College

This partnership of businesses, college, schools and council is a wonderful example of the benefit in offering more and varied routes through education and it is a deliberate connection between the skills that employers in North Ayrshire are calling out for, showing pupils the wide range of career opportunities out there, and offering them the best training and education to help them excel in their chosen field.

This unique partnership will prepare young people for work by providing more vocational options in the senior phase of secondary school (fourth year and above). Courses provided will be influenced by the needs of the local economy and better links with the business community will ensure that young people make informed decisions about future study and careers.

The role of local businesses and their long-term support and involvement is crucial to the success of the Centre.
