Forth Valley Sensory Centre (FVSC) is a charity that supports deaf, hard of hearing, blind and partially sighted people of all ages across Forth Valley. They deliver over 30 groups, classes and activities and have a Sensory Garden, Kitchen Garden, Sensory Room and public Café. Amna, Max and Chrislyn are 3 pupils who volunteer at the centre to gain work experience in their local community and develop skills for life after school. FVSC wish to continue to highlight the work of the centre to young people and their families in the area.
In May 2022, DYW Borders worked in partnership with Camerons Strachan Yuill Architects (CSY), Scottish Borders Council Education Department and Inspire Learning, to offer all the local secondary schools a unique weeklong virtual work placement. This opportunity was offered to pupils from S3 to S6 who had expressed an interest in a career in Architecture or Design which resulted in 20 pupils from 6 schools successfully gaining a place.
