As part of our commitment to Developing the Young Workforce, we worked with Loudoun, Stewarton and Doon Academies on a social media and community engagement project. Each school was asked to produce a video on “how to run a community event”. The videos were all fantastic and were premiered at our AGM, where the audience voted Loudoun Academy as the overall winner, earning the school £200 for future projects.
