The excellent partnerships between Angus schools and employers were recognised at a special event in the Carnoustie Golf Hotel tonight (Tuesday).
During the Partnership Recognition Event at the Carnoustie Golf Hotel the winner of the Partnership Excellence Awards were named.
The award is split into primary and secondary categories and recognises a specific example of partnership working between education and the business community which has made a significant impact on young people’s learning.
This year, in the primary school section Carlogie Primary School was presented with the Partnership Excellence Award for their work with the Co-operative Education Trust for Scotland.
The winner in the secondary school category was Montrose Academy for their work with the RNLI.
The winners were presented with a commemorative trophy for the school and the partner involved by Councillor Lynne Devine, vice convener of education.
Congratulating the winners, Councillor Devine said: “I am so pleased to be presenting the trophies to these two winners. They are both excellent examples of partnerships in practice and show a clear commitment by both the school and the organisation involved.
“Partnerships between employers, the wider community and schools are helping to improve enterprise, employability and entrepreneurial skills amongst young people in Angus to help them prepare for a successful life beyond school.
“They also enable participating organisations and businesses to invest in the future of their business and cultivate an enterprising ethos in the county of Angus.”
