Report from Mrs McDonald
Fourth year pupils from the Princes Trust XL group visited an event at Hampden Park, Glasgow on Thursday 11th March called Welcome to your Future. Organised by the Princes Trust and supported by the SPFL, the day aimed to give young people the opportunity to hear from and meet leaders in business and industry.
In the morning a panel of experts answered questions and gave advice about getting into business and the skills and attitude needed to succeed. The afternoon saw pupils walking around workshop areas meeting individual employers, getting advice and information and potentially applying for vacancies and training opportunities.
The pupils from XL agreed that the day was interesting and particularly enjoyed meeting businesses and speaking to employers in banking, police and the the automobile industry.
