First Chances foundation

First Chances foundation works with P7 to S3 pupils, encouraging them to develop their skills, motivation and self-esteem in order to achieve their full potential as they progress through their education.

Each year pupils follow a specially designed programme, culminating in an annual summer activity held at either the University of St Andrews or Fife College.

The programme is delivered through a series of workshops and events by school teachers as well as university and college staff, supported by current students from the relevant institution. Pupils develop their learning in literacy, numeracy, science and technology as well as reflective thinking and critical analysis.

The First Chances foundation programme was developed to align with and support key experiences and outcomes as stated in the Curriculum for Excellence.
