Glasgow Caledonian University
Advanced Higher Hub
Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU)’s Advanced Higher Hub is award-winning widening access initiative which reaches out to 28 partner schools to enable pupils to study Advanced Highers at its city-centre campus. Funding from the ScottishPower Foundation will provide up to 40 additional places in Advanced Higher Biology and Chemistry and will, along with existing backing from the Scottish Funding Council and Glasgow City Council, support two additional members of teaching staff.
The Hub is a bridge between school and university and gives pupils an insight into the many pathways open to them. With the Foundation’s support, GCU will be able to further enhance the opportunities available to the pupils by enabling them to visit innovative and world-leading facilities.
Pupils will enjoy exploratory trips to Whitelee Windfarm, the UK’s largest onshore windfarm operated by ScottishPower Renewables, and the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute in Glasgow.
