After a successful initial pilot of the Northern Alliance Collaborative Online Curriculum Opportunities (COCO) Project, we are planning for Phase 2 and are looking for schools to deliver SQA courses as part of the project for session 2022/23.

Schools can express an interest in delivering courses until 19th January: complete the lead school form now. We aim to have the COCO Course Choice Booklet out to schools the week beginning 7th February 2022.

Have a read of our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the project to find out more.

Looking at the tracking and success of the project so far, we know it’s working:

  • 100% of learners are on target to pass (A-C) and achieve their target grade
  • Data from the most recent evaluation rates learner experience as 4.6 out of 5
  • School feedback has also been positive and rated at 4 out of 5

Learners tell us they’re pleased the offer is helping them to study subjects they wouldn’t have been able to in school and that they’re enjoying interacting with peers across the country. Colleagues are pleased to be able to expand their schools’ curriculum offer and meet the needs of learners in an innovative way.

So far and with colleagues’ support across the Northern Alliance, we’ve been delivering five courses across three levels with 17 learners from across five local authorities. We can deliver more with your help.
