A group of senior pupils from Bannockburn High School are the first to graduate with the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) qualification provided through Forth Valley College.

The college has been promoting their ECDL delivery model to senior students (S5 and S6) and staff across Forth Valley for the last few months and theses students led the way to complete the course.

George Walls, FVC’s Test Centre Manager and IT lecturer in FVC’s Business Department, said:

“This is the first tranche of ‘Senior Phase Pupils’ pupils from Bannockburn High School who have undertaken the ECDL programme,  they all took ECDL as an option choice as part of their learning journey within the school.

“I’m very pleased for these pupils, they all embraced the format of learning and assessment that we provided them with. They all enjoyed working through the course and I enjoyed seeing each of them achieve this internationally recognised ICT qualification.

“The staff from Bannockburn High Schook were very supportive of this working partnership -  Deputy Head Teacher Jim Timmins, whose remit includes ‘Preparing the Young Workforce’-  is very pleased with the support given by FVC to both staff and pupils at the school. FVC will be offering ECDL to more of their pupils next session."

The pupils who graduated on the day were: Rachel Campbell, Amy Clark, Caitlyn Dermindy, Connor Derrik, Holly Edwards, Rhys Gibson, Robyn Hennesay, Scott Keir, Rees McCallum, Amy Mcquillan, Nicole Millar, Craig Sutherland and Robbie Young.
