Glasgow Caledonian University’s Advanced Higher Hub, a partnership with Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Funding Council, were announced as the winners the Partnership of the Year category. The Advanced Higher Hub sees sixth year pupils who would not normally have access to Advanced Higher in their school, enrol at the university campus to complete their qualifications and get a taste for university life. The 2015/16 cohort of Hub students achieved a 91% pass rate in the Advanced Higher courses, with over 80% of them going on to study at university.
