Our own Marie Woods, Senior Curriculum Manager – Community Engagement, has been applauded by our partners who have recognised her remarkable work in the community.
At the Festival of Youth Enterprise Awards held online earlier this week, Marie received the Outstanding Contribution Award to Young Enterprise Scotland (YES) for her significant contribution to their project and to ensuring accreditation or their learning activities.
Presenting her award, Fraser Morrison of YES (22mins 50) speaks admiringly about Marie’s ‘incredible impact on the work of Young Enterprise Scotland’ which has enabled over 300 young people to achieve a level 6 qualification.
Colleagues, Andrea MacAulay and Gary Harkins say of Marie,
“Marie has worked tirelessly on the programme for over a year, including part of last year’s summer break. Her dedication and drive has been instrumental in the programme’s collaborative development with Young Enterprise Scotland; its roll-out and very significant SCQF accreditation.
Young Enterprise Scotland and the young people participating in the programme across Scotland have been delighted with the programme and at all stages have provided such positive feedback. There really is no other similar qualification that can match the YES Company Programme, as it offers practical hands on experience of setting up a company, including all of the components that would be connected to doing so, such as product/service design, marketing, finance, HR etc. She has done a tremendous job.”
Here at Glasgow Kelvin we are extremely proud of Marie’s achievement and delighted at her success. She has had an impressive community-focused career over the years and has worked doggedly to ensure that experiential learning receives the recognition it deserves. She continually keeps the learners’ needs at the heart of her work and is inspirational in her enthusiasm for learning as a tool for transformation and progress.
Colleagues and students alike are delighted at Marie’s achievement and wish her hearty congratulations! Well Done!
