Home Preparing Young People for the World of Work

 

Four of our S5 pupils Ruben, Charlie, Iona  and Sean  were successful in gaining a place on the Career Ready Programme.  They have been matched with  business mentors from local businesses; Gleneagles Hotel, Highland Spring and Aviva, who will work to support our young people through the programme. Career Ready aims to build skills, confidence and improve the pupils employability chances.  The programme is two years long and consists of a series of master-classes, work place visits and a 4 week paid internship in the summer holidays.  We wish them well on the programme!

Last year's successful applicants had a wonderful experience during their internships. Shaun Seaton at Highland Spring supported by his mentor Myf Moran and Christian Gleeson at Gleneagles Hotel supported by his mentor Stephen Hamilton.  Both boys left school at the end of S5 to seek employment, but still continue with the second year of the programme. Christian  gained a full-time job at Gleneagles following the success of his internship!
