The Faculty of Supported Learning organised an information session for students, parents and carers of the Faculty about transition opportunities.
The event at Motherwell Campus aimed to better inform attendees about opportunities available for students either at the College or through other education providers, training providers, modern apprenticeship providers, employers or enterprise developers.
Almost 30 organisations attended, including Independent Living Fund Scotland, Enable, One Parent Families Scotland and the National Autistic Society.
Those in attendance heard from a number of presenters on topics including education, employment and funding opportunities. They could also pick up information leaflets, receive advice, and ask questions on various issues.
Pam Clinton, Partnership Manager for the Faculty of Supported Learning, said:
“We had 28 organisations exhibiting at stalls at the event with over 80 people attending the event including training providers, employers, support organisations, employability teams, teachers, lecturers, career advisers, students as well as their parents and carers. The feedback we received was very positive and it is hoped that a similar event will take place for Coatbridge and Cumbernauld students in the near future.”
