Council team scoops national digital award

THE education teams of Dumfries and Galloway Council together with East, North and South Ayrshire Councils won the Digital Transformation Award at the Municipal Journal (MJ) Awards.

They were successful with ‘SWConnects’, – the digital delivery of qualifications.

It delivers live online teaching for Advanced Highers and Highers to pupils in 40 secondary schools and across the four councils.

Education director Dr Gillian Brydson, above left: “We are delighted to have won this MJ award as it validates and recognises the quality of the work we have delivered so successfully.

“Winning an MJ Award acknowledges the tremendous effort of all the staff and learners within the four local authorities and shows what can be achieved if we are brave and work together.

“To be able to offer a broader range of qualifications to pupils in rural areas has meant they’ve had the chance to go on to study courses at colleges and universities that would not previously been possible. A sincere thank you to all the teachers, support staff and learners who have made it such a success.”
