Warburtons is to continue its work with young people, following the signing of a formal agreement with Lanarkshire-based Bellshill Academy and North Lanarkshire Council.

Pupils from four primary schools, associated with the Academy, have already had the opportunity to learn how to design, create and market a new bread product through the scheme.

In addition, they have had the chance to experience the ‘pitching process’ for which they benefited from mentoring from older pupils to perfect their presentation skills.

Aileen Strowes, safety & CR manager, Warburtons Scotland, said: “Warburtons Scotland are delighted about the signing of the partnership with Bellshill Academy, and are more than happy to help support the school in line with the Curriculum of Excellence, we look forward to continuing our work with the school to help inspire and educate the pupils in the understanding of the world of business.”

The partnership was set up by the Scottish Food and Drink Federation as part of its ‘A Future in Food’ national schools programme.
