KENNY MacAskill MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Justice, has visited Lochend Community High School in Easterhouse, Glasgow, to see how its students are being given a taste of the world of work by Sodexo, a leading food and facilities management services provider.
Accompanied by Samantha Barber, chief executive of Scottish Business in the Community (SBC), the Minister met a group of students who have either already taken part in the ‘World of Work’ programme – run by Sodexo in partnership with SBC and Glasgow District Council – or are currently preparing to.
The students spoke to Mr MacAskill about the benefits of the programme, which sees individuals undertake a week-long work placement at Glasgow Sheriff Court – where Sodexo also manages the food services – to gain real-life experience of applying for a job, having an interview and holding work related responsibility.
