    Creativity to Break Barriers to Achievement

    The main aim of the project was to raise and improve educational performance through the development of a programme for the teaching of study skills. A study skills pack, " Get the Edge", was produced for staff and pupils with a support pack available for parents. The use of drama and the production of a DVD was also an integral part of the project. Through the project, closer links were developed with IES Renacimiento and Fundacion Belen in Madrid to provide a context for the enrichment of international links as well as study skills. The resources produced provide a range of learning strategies and enhance skills to learn independently. It is hoped that this will improve motivation and achievement.

    International links were developed between South Lanarkshire Council and Madrid. These cultural, language, socail and educational links will be built upon even although the project itself has been completed.
