College Students’ Talents ‘Shine’ Through!
Three impressive creative projects from Glasgow Kelvin College’s National 1 and 2 students are set to be exhibited as part of the SQA SHINE initiative.
The selected projects involve a crafted Photoframe, a painting and a podcast, all of which have been achieved a part of our students’ programme, often as a group activity. They will form part of the SHINE Exhibition which is set to be displayed in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow in November.
The SHINE initiative forms part of the Scottish Government’s Year of Young People 2018 celebrations and will showcase the work of National 1 and 2 students throughout Scotland.
Congratulations to the students involved and their tutors – a great achievement and well done!
Watch this space for more info on the exhibition.
Transitions To Learning Community Discussion
Young people attending the Transitions to Learning and Work programme in Easterhouse Campus worked in pairs to discuss different aspects of what makes a community. They discussed the services, people, businesses and issues they could identify from their own experiences.
Throughout Block 1 the young people will be asked to plan outings to different services in the local community during their youth work classes. These activities encourage the learners to work effectively together and participate more confidently in group work. Learners are supported to influence their own curriculum by trying new activities, choosing topics they are interested in and working towards a range of qualifications, including Youth Achievement Awards, Community Achievement Awards and SQA units.
Model Day 2018
New York, London, Paris, Milan and...... Springburn!
HND Photography year 2 students were right on point when they took part in the departmen'ts "Model day 2018". A collaboration with industry trendsetters "Colours Model Management" proved to be a terrific experience for the students who worked with a selection of models and make-up artists to produce top quality images for their fashion photography unit.
The experience proved to be a rewarding one with students speaking of how their "confidence had grown" and how "inspired" it made them feel to get to collaborate and direct the models.
A truly worthwhile practical exercise and the images are striking. Well done to the students and the staff who support them.
