Welcome to the Academy9 Blog.
Academy9 is an exciting new education initiative from Transport Scotland, linked specifically to the A9 Dualling programme. It is hoped that it will encourage pupils of schools on the Perth to Inverness corridor to consider STEM related careers.
Whilst the initiative is currently aimed specifically at schools on the Perth to Inverness corridor, there are lots of resources available to all schools to access in the “Resources” tab on this website.
There are also a couple of helpful overview videos of the A9 Dualling Programme at the bottom of this page, one of which is more school friendly.
On this site you will find lots of information about Transport Scotland and the A9 Dualling Scheme. You will also find helpful and interesting material about a huge range of other subjects. As you can see, under the “Bookmarks” links at the side of this and every page, you will have access to an impressive list of educational, engineering, ecological and geological related websites.
There is also a password protected part of the website dedicated to a A9 Teachers Unit. This is specifically aimed at raising the awareness of teachers, classroom assistants and other education practitioners about the upgrade to dual carriageway of the A9 road between Perth and Inverness.
Please feel free to browse our site.
