Scotland's Rural College (SRUC)

SRUC will continue to focus on three key areas of student transitions: employability; transitions within SRUC’s flexible HN/degree programmes; and transitions from employment to study.  Within these key areas SRUC will identify and share current good practice, and determine issues or gaps requiring appropriate action.

SRUC are now focusing on several specific projects in the second year of the Theme.

The institutional lead is  Lesley Howie.
