Secondary Schools Course Information
We hope to expand Bridge education in secondary schools.
To this end we are putting together a 3 stage course with options of a stage 4 later.
At the end of each stage students successfully completing the course will be a warded a certificate. This is in recognition of the needs of students to show evidence of achievement outside academic fields.
Each course will require at least 8 hours of tuition and will be suitable for teaching in curriculum time under social skills, life skills, strategy skills, etc or suitable for lunch time or after school clubs or Duke of Edinburgh skills training.
Stage 2 This will be added very soon
Stage 3 This will be added very soon
In schools where courses are already established, tutors can match the standards required to their own courses and award certificates.
Some materials are already in the Dropbox and more will be added soon. Teachers or SBU tutors wishing access should contact me with a request.
Schools already taking part are :-
Hutchesons Grammar, The High School of Glasgow , (all in Glasgow) Stewart’s Melville, Culloden Academy, Balfron High School, Dollar Academy. Moffat Academy, Craigclowan School, Montrose Academy and Wellington School in Ayr
Aberdeen Bridge Centre, Ayrshire Bridge Centre and St Andrews Club in Glasgow are also offering courses for teenage young people. Apologies if I have omitted any. Please let me know.
Hopefully by publishing these people will be able to arrange matches. Contacts can be obtained from me
