Traditional Building Skills inspire youngsters

Traditional Building Skills inspired young people as Forth Valley College’s Stirling Campus began its season of Summer Schools.

Ideal for S4-S6 aged secondary school pupils the Traditional Building Skills Summer School took place between 3-6 July. It featured a wide range of practical hands-on skills including carpentry and joinery, decorative skills, stonemasonry and roofwork, as well as offer students the chance to visit buildings and projects of educational relevance and importance.

In these photographs the teenagers got to grips with working with stone in the specialised Historic Environment Scotland (HES) workshops, led by instructor Innes Drummond.

Summer schools help youngsters to find a fun and inspiring way to spend part of their holidays and improve their career prospects. Other Summer Schools on offer at the Stirling Campus this year include: Junior Chef (24-28 July) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) to be arranged for 7-11 August.
