Local MP Jo Swinson paid a visit to ASDA Bishopbriggs last Friday to present City &Guilds certificates to students who recently completed work experience at the store.
Jo praised the successful achievement of the school pupils as well as ASDA Bishopbriggs for offering the learners the chance to gain the skills they need to succeed in the world of work.
Commenting Jo said:
“It was wonderful to celebrate the fantastic achievements of these students. I applaud ASDA Bishopbriggs for helping to prepare young people for long successful careers.
“I know how important and life-changing a chance like this can be. People who are out of work for a sustained period when they’re young can find it difficult to hold down jobs throughout their working lives.
“This is why I set up the Get East Dunbartonshire Working Scheme last year which found 109 training or job opportunities.”
