• develop an understanding of how Scotland has developed as a nation, resulting in an appreciation of their local and national heritage within the global community
• broaden their understanding of their own values, beliefs and cultures and those of others
• learn how to locate, explore and link periods, people and events in time and place
• learn how to locate, explore and link features and places locally and further afield
• engage in entrepreneurial activities which stimulate an enterprising attitude
• develop an understanding of concepts that stimulate enterprise and influence business
• establish firm foundations for lifelong learning and for further specialised study and careers
