Awards for teenagers dedicated

to college club

Kirklees teenagers, who were members of a Saturday morning club where they learnt new skills at Kirklees College, received certificates of achievement at a presentation on Saturday 24 April.

37 pupils from secondary schools across Kirklees took part in the scheme that involved spending three hours on Saturday mornings at the College’s main campus in Huddersfield and at the Brunel House site.

Kirklees College’s Saturday club is designed to give young people an insight into occupations including hospitality, plumbing, engineering, computer aided design, ICT, joinery and motor vehicle.

The youngsters completed two different courses over 20 weeks (10 weeks on each) and recently picked up a record of their achievement which can be used towards future vocational studies.

Julie James, Schools Liaison Officer at Kirklees College said:
“The club provides a great opportunity for pupils from local schools to gain a valuable insight into a variety of different work areas. The experience not only opens their eyes to the career options available but also helps them make a more informed career choice at a later stage. They have all shown real dedication by voluntarily giving up their free time on Saturday mornings.”

The pupils came from the following schools in the area: All Saints High School, Almondbury High School, Colne Valley High School, Holmfirth High School, Honley High School, King James’ High School, Moor End Technology College, Rastrick High School, Salendine Nook High School and Shelley College.
