“Really insightful and exciting. Loved the change from lessons! Learned new things about job interviews. Very motivated, excellent talk, very knowledgeable. Definitely have GRC back to hold another session!”

GRC Training is proud to be committed to developing the communication and presentation skills of young people in secondary schools across Scotland.

Our unique and highly-practical courses are designed to build confidence and essential communication skills regardless of whether the young person is going into further education or into the world of work.

We use creativity to encourage personal development and interpersonal skills that are increasingly important and essential qualities for employers and a successful workforce.

GRC Training works with pupils from the 4th year upwards working on interview skills, group presentation projects, creative team-building through writing and presenting podcasts and facilitating group discussions around self-belief and personal values.

We also organise larger school events.

For example, our ‘The Made in Scotland Partnership’ is a project that brings together Scottish industry with the Scottish education sector to engage and inspire young people to succeed on their chosen route to either further education or to the world of work.

The project focuses on the development of communication skills, on passion, on commitment and on focus to achieve their personal and professional goals.

Lower-Sixth pupils hear stories of inspiration from a panel of some of the country’s leading professionals from a range of business backgrounds. The pupils can quiz the panellists about their success and receive first-hand advice on how to use these so-called ‘soft-skills’ in order to achieve their ambitions.

 

Testimonial

“Dear Gary

I just wanted to drop you an e-mail to thank you for the co-ordination and delivery of the partnership input into our S6 conference.  The pupil evaluation has been very positive and you input helped to launch the S6 positively into their final year at High School.  I have been impressed by the press coverage which has been positive for the school and well received by Perth and Kinross Council.

Thank you again for your input, and the generous sponsorship from Binn Group”
