We are a group called Moving On at Perth College UHI. The course is here to help young people between the age of 15 and 17 get back into education who have had some pretty difficult transitions in life. It gives us an opportunity to build our confidence, resiliency and develop ourselves personally so that we can progress through the college system, as many of us have missed a lot of school.

We work on our behavior, employability skills and interpersonal skills and learn to evaluate our work daily through a work based point system which looks at things like our time keeping, respect for each other and the environment we learn in.

We progress through the year from Bronze to Platinum and at each stage we get a reward like going to the cinema as a group or visiting the natural history museum. The platinum award is a residential trip to Badaguish near Aviemore with students from the Social and Vocational Studies (SVS) department at Perth College UHI. 

We raised some money for the residential through organising a Christmas Ball for the SVS students this year. We are hoping to raise more money so it is possible for us to have the residential experience which will helps us budget and plan meals, organise trips and events, work with adults and diverse learners, peer mentor and support others and experience new things.

“A lot of us came on this course because we didn’t have a good time in school and this course would give us hope for a better future. It has really helped us grow, improving our confidence, maturity and attitude towards the future. We feel we could go onto other course or get a good job in life where as before we though we’d never accomplish our goals. We feel we would be able to support ourselves.

The residential is important to us as it’s a chance to get away and have a break from everything, be independent and responsible and have a chance to cook and fend for ourselves as well as building our people skills and team working skills… just to feel normal really”

We would like to ask people to help us achieve our goal of £500 towards our £1,200 costs. We have raised £250 already and we are working on raising the other £500 through other fundraising ventures. Please please please help us!
