Do you need highers to pursue your chosen career or study path? Did you miss out on Highers at school and want another chance to achieve your ambitions.

T2HE is a full-time course that gives you the chance to develop your dreams into definite career plans whatever they are.

T2HE is for both school leavers and adult learners who wish to return to education but who might not have achieved entry requirements at school.

T2HE offers you a personal planning session, as part of your interview, to help you decide which qualifications are best for you to take in your route to your future goals.

T2HE is an opportunity to choose 3 subjects from a range of subjects at National 5 (SCQF level 5) and Higher (SCQF level 6). We offer you three different routes into higher education: a science route, a humanities route or a pick and mix route, made of both science and humanities. This will take you on your journey to higher education or it will help prepare you for any profession. It's really up to you.

T2HE is an excellent way to prepare for higher education and future employment.
