We offer the widest range of SQA subjects in Scotland and will be offering some courses which may not be available in other schools, starting with Higher Politics. Where schools already provide a specific course, Dollar will work with teachers and share online resources to support the provision of this subject. The initiative is the first of its kind in Scotland.
In addition to this, shorter multidisciplinary ‘Discovery’ courses will be offered to pupils at both Dollar Academy and state schools. Created in partnership with the pioneering NuVu Studio in the United States, these courses will bring together leading figures from industry, NGOs and academia to create exciting content that explores relevant, real-world topics framed around the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The content will allow students to develop their curiosity and critical thinking in order to better understand the world around them, be an active force for good and develop vital skills that will support them when they leave school and enter the workplace. The first courses, which carry industry backing from Johnstons of Elgin and Grimshaw Architects, will be Activist Fashion and Architecture for Wellbeing, with plans to roll out further courses throughout the year.
