An introduction to welding was the perfect workshop to spark interest in a future career for a group of eight Graeme High School pupils who visited Forth Valley College’s Falkirk Campus this week (Tuesday 22 November).

Dougie Ross, Curriculum Manager in the Department of Applied Science, Maths and Mechanical Engineering, said:

“The young people from Graeme High School really enjoyed their two hour worskshop here at our engineering facilities at the Falkirk Campus. We were glad to help out the high school who are hoping to spark an interest in some of their 15 and 16 year-old pupils who don’t know exactly what they would like to do when they leave school. We are looking forward to hosting another group very soon.”

Tania Bremner, Design and Technology Teacher, at Graeme High School, said:

“The welding session was a really valuable learning experience for the young people of Graeme High and each pupil thoroughly enjoyed the session. They have developed their skills in welding and it has also given them a chance to see what the college has to offer for them as they make choices for their futures. Thanks to the college for being so accommodating and working in partnership with Graeme High to set up this fantastic opportunity for the young people.”
