Huge congratulations to West College Scotland #Paisley HNC Graphic Design student Sophie Westwood on winning "Student of the Year" at the Young Enterprise UK Start Up Programme Final in Loughborough.
Sophie is a member of MOYA - Minds of Young Artists - a production company created and driven entirely by design students from the West College Scotland Paisley Campus where the revolutionary concept aims at promoting and selling the students' artwork.
The Start-Up Programme has been specifically designed for Higher Education (HE)and Further Education (FE) to enhance educational experience and deepen learning. By participating in the programme students not only understand what skills employers are looking for but they have the opportunity to develop,apply and model these skills in a business environment.
We know that not every student who takes part in the Start-Up programme will want to be an entrepreneur, but in an increasingly competitivejob market, where more people than ever before are graduating from university and college, students increasingly need to find a way of creating their ownnetworks and setting themselves apart from their peers.
Our Vision is for Scotland to be a place where all young people are given the opportunity to have a rewarding future in work and life - no matter where they start
Our Mission is to inspire & equip all young people to learn, develop and reach their full potential through enterprise.
In everything that we do, we will work with the following values: Integrity, Enthusiasm, Creativity & Collaboration.
