About SilverNote

The SilverNote Music Enterprise was launched in session 2016/17 to provide opportunities for students at North East Scotland College to work collectively, often with peers from different disciplines to develop essential skills with a focus on the Creative Industries to:

  • Develop enterprising and creative attitudes and skills whilst learning;
  • Experience and develop understanding of the world of work in all its diversity, including entrepreneurial and creative activity and self-employment;
  • Enjoy appropriately focused career education with relevant guidance from internal and external partners.

Working across multiple curriculum areas, NESCol created SilverNote Music Enterprise to engage with the community, employers and industry professionals.  An aim was to provide a high profile platform to celebrate student achievements by dedicating a platform to showcase original music created by students.  Students from different subject areas brought together their creative talents from within the structures of the curriculum, and demonstrated these within the context of an industry led enterprise.
