As part of the school’s ‘Developing the Young Workforce’ programme a group of 40 S4 pupils recently participated in a ‘Skills for Life and Work’ week. This programme guaranteed that pupils would gain seven additional qualifications and an improved CV before heading out on work experience for the remainder of study leave. Qualifications on offer included Emergency First Aid, REEHIS Food Hygiene, and Police Scotland’s ‘Keep Safe’ ambassador programme. The week ended with a presentation of certificates to pupils by MP for Motherwell and Wishaw Marion Fellows and Depute Leader of North Lanarkshire Council Paul Kelly, Head Teacher Mr Rooney and programme organiser Mr Clarke. Congratulations to all the pupils who took part in a fantastic week of learning.
