Science for a Successful Scotland was launched on the 7th of February 2018 by the Minister for Further
Education, Shirley-Anne Sommerville at Knightswood Secondary School with the help of the school pupils, parents and staff. It is an open education resource (OER) developed by the WEA with Dr. Heather Reid, OBE, Daniel Sellers, education consultant, and Glasgow Clyde College.
The resource which was funded by Glasgow Clyde Education Foundation, will be used with groups of adult learners in the community including those served by Glasgow Clyde College which is supporting the roll-out and accessibility of the resource with the development of an interactive e-learning version for students and the wider community to access.
This resource makes a contribution to the recently launched STEM Education and Training Strategy for Scotland which aims to support and encourage all to develop their own STEM skills throughout life.
“This is a great example of partnership working between further education and third sector organisations and how they can successfully work together to deliver a better learning experience for families, adult learners and students living within their communities”.
