Once again, a big well done to Lexi Concel, Frances Hobbs, Ethan McHugh, Paul Tennant and Ciaran Duffy on their graduation from the ‘Gateway to Engineering’ programme.
This excellent programme has been an integral part of our school ‘Developing the Young Workforce’ curriculum for a number of years. It combines classroom/college based learning with practical ‘hands on’ activities and ‘live’ construction site visits to help the pupils develop a sense of the industry specific knowledge and employability skills required in the many engineering fields.
Thanks, once again, to our valued partners from Clyde Gateway, Robertson Construction, Glasgow Kelvin College and the University of the West of Scotland, the course has been amended, re-developed and re-branded into a fully accredited SCQF Level 5 certificated programme.
Already the successful pupils are planning their next steps to a positive destination. Some have enrolled onto an Engineering Foundation Apprenticeship already, whilst others have been inspired into considering an Engineering Degree course at university.
Please watch the video below to see and share in the pupils’ journey.
The graduation event welcomed speakers from each of the partners, as well as presentations from the pupils, and the award certificates were presented by Mr Jamie Hepburn, Scottish Minister for Business, Fair Work and Skills.
