An opportunity for the community to gain an insight into events going on within the school with regards to Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce. DYW Newsletter 1
At the end of February, Hamilton Grammar School hosted a Business Breakfast. This was an opportunity for the school to celebrate the links they already have with employers and create and nurture new ones. The event was also a chance for employers to come into the school and speak with young people and share their experiences of education and their personal journey to their chosen occupation. Feedback from the event was extremely positive, with employers committing to getting involved in various other activities such as mock interviews, providing work experience placements and an apprenticeship event. Pupils enjoyed sharing their experiences with employers and gained worthwhile advice on how to successfully achieve their career goals. A massive thanks to the 28 businesses that attended the event, including New Age Fitness, Colonel Mustard In The Courthouse, Elspeth Hamilton Perfumery (representing Hamilton BID), George Taylor & Co, BCF Technology, Aldi, theSKYLAB and Slater, Hogg and Howison – to name a few.
