Clydesdale MSP, Aileen Campbell has welcomed the launch of the ‘one stop shop’ online resource Studying Scotland for teachers and pupils.

The website will host materials on history, arts and culture and enable pupils to find out more about Scottish and local history whether it’s Lanark’s connections to William Wallace or the area’s mining history.

After recommendations by the Scottish Studies Working Group the website will now be available in all schools and will help pupils develop key learning attributes, knowledge and skills.

Commenting, Aileen Campbell said:

"The Scottish Government has always been clear that learning about Scotland should be an integral part to Curriculum for Excellence and a pupil’s education.

"The launch of the online resource Studying Scotland comes after recommendations from the Scottish Studies Working Group and follows public support from the non-political Champions Group, which includes academics, novelists and former teachers, and aims to promote and explain the importance of Scottish studies.

"We have a rich history in Clydesdale - Lanark has some of the strongest connections to William Wallace anywhere in Scotland, we have a world heritage site, we have a rich industrial history in mining, and the area is renowned for its fruit production.

"This online resource is a one stop shop which will make it easier for teachers and pupils to access this information and develop a better understanding of not only Scotland’s history, but their own local history."
