Fiona Hyslop MSP attended West Lothian College’s Graduation Day Ceremony on October 28 and handed out seven special awards to students being recognised for outstanding personal achievements and enterprise awards.
Fiona commented: “I am always pleased to attend West Lothian College’s Graduation day to meet some of the young people as they start a new chapter in their lives.
“It was particularly enjoyable this year, to give out the awards to students who have not only acquired new qualifications in their chosen subjects but have also shown outstanding personal achievements throughout their time at West Lothian College. Over 92 per cent of West Lothian’s young people are choosing to continue their education, enter training or get a job after leaving school, which is an increase on previous years. Whether it is college, university, training or employment, I am pleased to see that so many of our young people are following their ambition and developing their goals as they make their way into the workforce.”
