Description

SCHOOL pupils from the Clyde Gateway area have potentially taken their first steps into a career in engineering after completing a ten-week programme. Eleven youngsters from Trinity High School, St Mungo’s Academy and Stonelaw High School have been participating in the annual ‘Gateway to Engineering’ initiative, run in collaboration between Robertson, Clyde Gateway, Glasgow Kelvin College and the University of the West of Scotland (UWS).
The pupils gained an SCQF Level 5 Gateway to Engineering qualification, supported by Glasgow Kelvin College. It comes as the Scottish Government published its ‘New Housing and Future Construction Skills – Adapting and Modernising for Growth’ report, which outlined the importance of STEM partnerships between education and industry in ‘future proofing’ the industry.
