The Clyde Gateway funded Robertson Construction ‘Get into Engineering’ initiative got underway on Wednesday 18th January. Pupils from Eastbank Academy and St Mungo’s Academy joined Trinity High School pupils for an introduction to the course delivered by Robertson Construction’s own Gillian Pettigrew.
Pupils enjoyed meeting each other and undertaking various challenges designed to test skills and qualities such as problem solving, team work, communication and leadership.
Over the next 10 weeks the pupils can look forward to visits to live civil engineering projects, topped up with educational visits to the University West of Scotland and completing e-learning activities on employability skills such as Health and Safety and Manual Handling training.
