Glasgow's School-College Inclusion Programme at Glasgow Clyde College collected the Promoting Inclusion Award at the 2018 Scottish Qualifications Authority Star Awards.

Established in 2012, the programme provides a full-time alternative to school for the most vulnerable young adults and looked after and cared-for young people across Glasgow, supporting them to achieve SQA qualifications. .

The programme has clearly improved attendance, and progression to employment or further study.
