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.”
