SFL learners joined the Jewellery HNC students for an hour and a half lesson. Jewellery learners worked one to one with eight SFL learners in metal texturing and metal stamping. The learners were able to design and create individual bespoke pieces. The purpose of the exercise is for the Health and Well Being Award- looking at ways to improve Mental Health.
The SFL learner measured their own moods before and after the activity. All SFL learners noticed an improvement in their moods. As an afterthought, it was decided to assess the Jewellery student’s mood- and interestingly they too all showed a significant rise in mood.
The “giving” of their time and skills was as effective for them as the “learning something new” was enjoyable for the SFL learners.
This week Year 1 HND Civil Engineering hosted a guest lecture from Peter Robinson, Head of Engineering for Scottish Canals.
He delivered a very informative and enjoyable lecture taking in his career as a Civil Engineer, the history of canals in Scotland, and gave us an insight into the some projects Scottish Canals are most associated with; the Falkirk Wheel, and The Caledonian Canal.
He also gave the students and staff a top secret preview of a future Glasgow tourist attraction! Sorry, we are sworn to secrecy... A big thank you to Peter for his time.
Our trainee barbers are completing week 4 of intense training (and we mean intense), and now calling out for clients to come and assist in their learning journey by getting a FREE haircut.
If you, your friends, family inc. kids have any spare time Monday to Friday between 11am and 6pm please phone for appointment or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
'A great cut awaits supervised by Rebel Rebel barbers with brilliant barber banter coming as standard'
They are coming up with some group writing on this year's theme - Happiness and Laughter.
We also have a learner completing a short story to be included and another learner who will be performing his creative writing to an audience.
The festival takes place in March and all work will be displayed at the Glasgow Concert Hall. Very exciting!
