We’re absolutely thrilled to have students from the Skills for Life and Work course at Glasgow Clyde College joining us this weekend for Art On the Exchange! We’ve been informed that the students have been working extra-hard to get everything ready, and are buzzing about the weekend to come.
This course is a 2-year programme which offers students who need additional support a chance to develop all the skills necessary for future employment. It also hopes to improve independence and general life skills so that young people who complete the course are ready to step out and find the best job for them.
The students had a stall with us earlier this year, back in May, and sold mugs, bags and cushions that they’d made themselves with great success. This is a great way to incentivise students working towards an employability and enterprise programme, and all the students had a great time at the last market. As a social enterprise whose goal is to help artists and creators to sell and promote their work directly to the public, this is exactly the sort of programme we love to work with.
The students have been working hard on their handmade products business and have made lots of goodies that will make perfect gifts this Christmas. They’ll have a range of mugs, bags, prints and cushions for sale at their stall as well as delicious handmade Belgian chocolate festive treats and Christmas garlands.
Why not drop by and support these young entrepreneurs?
