To Develop the Young Workforce (DYW) we have established a Partnership Base to work with all young people of St Andrew’s Secondary throughout their learner journey, supporting them to have the skills, knowledge and understanding to enter a positive, sustainable destination.

The base has an open and welcoming environment which enables all young people to access the assistance they require at a time which does not impact on their studies. The base also provides emergency care packages for families in need.

Partnership Base Staff

Lisa Murphy is our Partnership Development Officer, who oversees the Partnership Base. Her role is to ensure appropriate partners are in place to meet our goals and also to ensure the Work Readiness Pipeline is open and available to all young people.

Elizabeth McKechnie is our DYW coordinator, who supports young by providing work and industry opportunites to inspire them into making a positive sustained transition beyond school.

Other staff include:  Lorna Craig and Ian McClymont (MCR Pathways) and Darren Nicholson (FARE Youth Worker)


Below are some examples of our Partners who St Andrew’s work very closely with to enable our young people to gain the life skills, work knowledge and understanding to enter a positive, sustainable destination on leaving school.

Skills Development Scotland

We have an excellent partnership with Skills Development Scotland and we have a number of onsite Careers Advisers who offer career management skills to our young people.


S1 – S3 Vocational Training

To assist our young people, S1-S3, in gaining experience of Vocational Training we have a number of City of Glasgow College lecturers in school delivering vocational tasters in a variety of vocational courses, including Construction, Hairdressing, Art and Digital Media.
