Recognising Our Triumphs!

Another week, another blog.  Shorter this week, but still have a few snippets and pictures for you to enjoy.


Triumph for Glasgow Kelvin’s Footballing Heroes!

They often say – ‘Third time lucky’.  Well, it was more than luck that drove the Glasgow Kelvin student football team to glory the other week at the Heriot Watt ground in the Scottish Student Football Cup where they beat a skilled Dundee & Angus College into second place!

In a game which was, apparently, very much one of two halves with each side taking turns to dominate, the teams matched each other in skill and in disappointment with several missed opportunities.

With Glasgow Kelvin fielding the younger of the teams, they dug in and defended well when Dundee & Angus were nosing ahead.  2-1 down at four minutes from the final whistle, we were awarded a penalty and brought the game to a nail-biting draw.

At the ensuing penalty shoot-out, our lads took the score to a heart-stopping 5-4, the winning save being made and goal being scored by a talented Johnathan McFarlane.

Distillery Hospitality

The Hospitality students  all enjoyed a well earned trip to Auchentoshan Distillery, to see the distillation process, and smell it, in action.

This helped the Level 6 students later in day to complete one of their assessments.

We all had a great morning learning about our National drink.


GTCS Registration Recognises Innovation in Teaching

Glasgow Kelvin College is delighted to announce it has received validation for its staff development and professional learning from the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) under their Professional Update framework.

The validation visit undertaken by assessors from GTCS took place in April and was a very positive experience for everyone involved.  The resulting report took account of the significant distance travelled in professional learning since merger, the transparency and accessibility of the staff development process and the innovation applied by staff and management to ensure that this learning is embedded within teaching practice.

On Friday 12th May a group of ESOL East End students and their teachers visited the Riverside Museum and the Tall Ship.

A great time was had by all. Students were particularly interested in walking down a Glasgow street from bygone days and comparing it with a similar street in their country.

There was even the chance to sit on a real ‘waltzer’ as part of a fairground exhibition.


That’s us finished for this week, but check back next Friday for an update on the Fashion Show and other activities.

Have a great weekend!
