That the Parliament congratulates staff and pupils at Charleston Academy in Inverness on being announced as the 200th school in Scotland to join the School Ambassador Programme, which is run by the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) Partnership; understands that the programme offers schools the opportunity to learn about the benefits of the SCQF, which supports people of all ages and circumstances to access education, training and development; believes that, by providing support and resources to the school, the programme will help pupils to recognise wider achievement opportunities, develop senior-phase learning pathways, and understand the high value of both vocational and academic qualifications; considers that this is an exciting opportunity for Charleston Academy pupils to progress on their learning journeys and realise new opportunities; congratulates staff and pupils at the school on this achievement, and wishes them all the very best in their participation of the programme going forward.
