I need an accountant. Did I claim for 3 sofas too?

This massive increase funded as a result of SNP education policy decisions will maximise the availability of courses available for pupils to study business management and accountancy courses at National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher level. The longer-term benefits for the Scottish economy are incalculable, by me anyway.

    I welcome this development, because it is an area of education which has been left for too long in the hands of the fairly exclusive schools. There is a case for the SG establishing a curriculum group to ensure that a range of economic and business models are given adequate coverage. I am thinking of things like not-for-profit enterprises, employee- and community-ownership, self-employment for people who provide goods and services, crowd-funding, etc. For far too long economics and business courses across the world have been based on the model set out in the 1940s by Samuelson, which made a number of unjustifiable asumptions, but is so widespread that it is almost hegemonic.

    Further good news regarding Scottish Education (and continuing links with our EU friends and partners) reported today on news.gov.scot – snippet and link below:

    https://news.gov.scot/news/access-to-financial-support-for-students-expanded

    New funding for postgraduate studies.

    A major expansion of postgraduate funding has been announced, with funding for students on Research Masters courses to be made available for the first time.

    This move will ensure that students can access all types of Masters study without financial barriers.

    Tuition fee loans of up to £5,500 and living cost loan support of up to £4,500 will be made available to Scottish postgraduate students on Research Masters courses from the coming academic year onwards. This expands on support previously made available to taught postgraduate courses and distance learning postgraduate students.

    Additionally, EU students will be eligible for the tuition fee element of the funding.

    Background

    Eligible Scottish domiciled students will be able to apply for tuition fee support and living cost loan support for research courses beginning 2019/2020.

    EU students will have access to the tuition fee element of this package, as they currently do for undergraduate and taught postgraduate courses.

    Postgraduate support is demand-led. If a student applies for funding they will receive that funding, provided the course is eligible. More than 450 postgraduate students could benefit from this expanded support package.
