LIFT OFF: Welcome

Thanks for dropping by :)

We're chuffed to bits that you're here.

LIFT OFF is a partnership of local colleges and universities in Fife and Tayside,

We work with pupils in our partner schools to help them make sense of the confusing world of higher education.   We have a load of fun while we're doing it, but we're deadly serious about supporting young people  to make good, well-informed choices about studying beyond school. 

As part of the Scottish Funding Council's "Schools for Higher Education Programme" we deliver a whole bunch of activities to engage and enthuse pupils from S3 to S6 about learning after school. Our programme is supported by our fabulous Student Volunteers, who are there to spill the bheans about what student life is really like.

We work with colleges, universities, SDS, schools, local authorities, the Open University, other SHEP programmes across Scotland, the custard cream appreciation society. . . . really anyone who wants to work with us.

See below for some more information about our work. We hope you like what you see. We'll see you in school very soon :)

Some of our stuff:

  • S3 Events for All
  • S4 Campus Events
  • LIFT Off to Success
  • LIFT OFF Learning Skills (LOLS)
  • LOLS+
  • S6 Review Panel
  • Individual Advice and Guidance
