New College Lanarkshire Visit

31st January 2018

I was delighted to accompany Shirley-Anne Sommerville, Minister for Higher Education, Further Education and Science, to New College Lanarkshire this morning.

We discussed the STEM Strategy and NCLs role in school/college partnerships, links with businesses and Foundation Apprenticeships.

I also met Besty Crosbie who is a shining example of young women excelling in Engineering.

Betsy has competed within the UK, as the only female competitor at Euroskills and one of two at the World Skills in Abu Dhabi.
