Enterprise and Employability

 Introduction

 Encouraging enterprising values such as "can do" and "will do" attitude — is not just about young people aspiring to be entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

It is the route to a more enterprising Scotland, where all our young people understand the contribution they can make as citizens, both to society and to the economy. It is also the pathway to a society in which individuals have self-confidence and a belief in their ability to succeed in whatever they choose.

 

Enterprise inspires all young people to learn and develop in a way that meets their needs and develops skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work.

Loxley Colour Limited

 

 On Friday 6th February, Cardinal Winning Secondary’s Post-16 students had the opportunity to visit the Photographic Lab and Production Facility of Loxley Colour Limited, in Cumbernauld. Organised by Mary Strachan, our Education Employability Officer, the trip provided an ideal opportunity for our Digital Media, Art and Graphic Design pupils to see at first hand the preparation and processes of photographic development and printing on an industrial scale.

We were guided around the showroom, offices and factory floor by Jacqueline, the Customer Services Manager, who described the work done in each department and who was glad to answer the many interesting points raised, and questions asked, by our young people.

 

 

   

 

 

Campbell Construction Group

 

 

On Thursday 12th February, senior school pupils from S4 to S6 on construction courses or with an interest in the subject, had the opportunity to visit Campbell Construction Group’s off-site fabrication and assembly factory. Located in the CambuslangInvestmentPark not far from school, we were welcomed and shown round by Claire Mistretti, Campbell’s Community Involvement Officer.

 

 

   

 The visit was arranged by our Education Employability Officer, Mary Strachan, and allowed our pupils to access the factory floor and see a variety of trades and procedures close up. Pupils had to wear Hi-Vis vests in accordance with Health & Safety Regulations and learned much from the experience.
