Rebecca is a finalist

A Foundation Apprentice (FA) from Forth Valley College has been revealed as a finalist for a national award.

Rebecca Townsend (17) from Linlithgow – who completed her FA in Health and Social Care while still at Bo’ness Academy and is pictured second from the left in this group of FAs – has reached the final few nominated in the Foundation Apprenticeship of the Year category of Skills Development Scotland’s 2017 Scottish Apprenticeship Awards.

The ceremony and dinner will take place on Thursday 16 November 2017 at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow.

Nicola McArthur, Curriculum Manager in the Department of Care, Health and Sport, said: “We are all so happy for Rebecca. She has worked so hard this year on her Health and Social Care Foundation Apprenticeship and deserves to be recognised with this finalist nomination. We are sure she will inspire more senior school pupils to think about the FAs and how valuable they can be to their future academic and professional careers.”

Fiona Brown, Associate Principal and Executive Director - Learning and Teaching, added: “This is absolutely brilliant news. I am delighted for Rebecca and for Nicola and her team and thrilled that the Forth Valley College Foundation Apprenticeship programme is being recognised in this way.”
