Apprenticeship Showcase

A group of pupils from S3-4 recently attended the annual Apprenticeship Showcase at South Lanarkshire College in East Kilbride. This event was planned to coincide with Scottish Apprenticeship Week and was aimed at heightening the profile of apprenticeships and allowing pupils to try their hand at painting and decorating, joinery and bricklaying amongst other activities. Feedback from the event was positive and we look forward to attending the event again next session.


Foundation Apprenticeship Visit to EkGTA

During Scottish Apprenticeship Week, five S4 pupils went on a site visit to one of the training providers who work along side South Lanarkshire College offering the Engineering Foundation Apprenticeship for next session. The Foundation Apprenticeship is a fairly new initiative which allows pupils to learn within an area of interest and work over 2 years with the college and an employer to develop their skills. This qualification is recognised by most Universities and is an excellent opportunity for those wishing to pursue both an apprenticeship or those hoping to attend University or College when leaving school.

The boys completed tasks in electrical and mechanical engineering, with trainers commenting on how motivated and interested they were with the tasks set to them. Some of the pupils handed back their applications on the day and we wish them all luck entering into the interview and selection process for this exciting qualification.
