S5/6 Pupils Interested in a Career in Care

Erskine is proposing to hold a breakfast event at the Erskine Home, Bishopton on Friday 9th March to introduce pupils to their organisation and advise them of Modern Apprentice opportunities this year. If you think that this is a career choice you would like to consider, and you would be able to attend such an event, please give your name to you Pastoral Care teacher by end of day Thursday 22nd February as we have to let Erskine know that you will attend.

The focus is on Care Assistant Modern Apprenticeships which would have a guarantee of employment at the end of the 2-year apprenticeship, but they are likely to take on another Business Admin Modern Apprentice.

The recruitment process includes a 2-hour workshop at Erskine to support the interview process. This proved very successful last year and they offered positions to more staff than intended.

More information about Erskine can be found on their website www.erskine.org.uk

Bavarian Brauhaus – S4, S5 and S6 German Pupils

On Wednesday 7th of February, S4, S5 and S6 German pupils went for lunch in the typical German restaurant “Bavarian Brauhaus” located in Glasgow. All pupils thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere and were very happy with their trip.

Pupil feedback:

It was fantastic.”, “Loved the Bratwurst and the restaurant itself was brilliant, would definitely go again.”, “Food was amazing, my Currywurst was delicious, would recommend to others.”, “Loved the food, would like to go back with friends and family.”, “***** Great food + Great atmosphere”, “The servers were really friendly and had cute outfits.”
