PUPILS from Clydebank High have achieved a youth-work based SQA accredited awards thanks to a council support service.

Working4U operates a successful partnership with the school by facilitating Youth Achievement Awards.

The award is peer assessed, portfolio-based, and provides participants with the freedom to develop their own challenges and targets.

Some of these challenges undertaken by youngsters have included planning and organising fundraising events including a pupil’s v staff football match and a sports raffle, raising more £2,000 in the process.
