Jackie Andrews, head of Academic Partnerships, said: “UHI Moray is once again, proud to support the Moray & Banffshire Heroes awards. UHI Moray works closely with our local secondary schools to provide opportunities for young people to challenge themselves through a wide and varied Senior Phase programme which includes vocational qualifications, as well as Higher National and Degree modules for those in their S6 year. As a proactive and progressive local partnership, we want to ensure that regardless of preferred destination or the path to get there, all Senior Phase pupils can, if they wish, benefit from this experience.

“This is why we sponsor the secondary school pupil award. I would urge everyone to vote for the nominees demonstrating that we are very proud of their achievements.”
