Renewables (Energy): A Subject-Based Aspect Report by Education Scotland on Provision in Scotland's Colleges on Behalf of the Scottish Funding Council. Transforming Lives through Learning
Education Scotland
The Education Scotland publication, "External Quality Arrangements for Scotland's Colleges, Updated August 2013," specifies that Education Scotland will produce a number of subject-based aspect reports each year. These reports complement, in a subject-specific context, the generic evaluations of learning and teaching in Education Scotland's external review reports of colleges. This report evaluates college programs within the energy (renewables) subject area. Programs covered by this report are offered at levels 4 to 8 of the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). These programs provide education and training for an industry sector that is making an increasingly important contribution to Scotland's economy. In preparing this report, inspectors visited a sample of seven colleges, drew on the findings of published Education Scotland reviews of colleges, and examined other relevant publications and reports. They consulted with key stakeholders, including employers and professional bodies. The following are appended: (1) Colleges visited in the fieldwork for this report; (2) Equalities data--gender; (3) Data for construction and engineering programmes, 2010-11 to 2012-13; (4) Portraits of excellent practice; and (5) Glossary of terms.
