HLM, a leading design and architecture practice with studios in Glasgow, has contributed to academic life in Glasgow through its involvement with Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Glasgow. HLM’s Marketing Executive, Amy Ogilvy, who is based in the Glasgow studio, has become a DYW Ambassador on behalf of the practice.
Through DYW, HLM has partnered with Glasgow Gaelic School and has now the opportunity to execute a programme for students in the forthcoming academic year. Within this, HLM will offer work experience in its Glasgow studio, competitive projects for graphic design students and get involved with career fairs at the school.
“I am thrilled to be an Ambassador for DYW and am delighted to be partnered with Glasgow Gaelic School. Having the chance to inspire young students and inform them of the endless possibilities available after school is a fantastic opportunity, both for myself personally and for HLM. The scheme genuinely inspires the next generation and opens their eyes to the possibilities after school. I would like to thank HLM for their support in this partnership, as it is a privilege to have the opportunity to make a difference,” said Amy.
HLM recognises the importance of helping students thrive in the workplace and equip them with the best knowledge to move forward into their next career move. The programme aims to prepare young people for the rapidly changing world of work and open their eyes to the many opportunities out there for them.
“At the Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu, equipping our students with the core skills, knowledge and confidence to excel in life after they leave our classrooms is at the heart of everything we do. We are excited to be partnered with HLM as part of the DYW programme and to be working closely with Amy. It is incredibly important for our students to gain valuable career insight and being able to gain this first hand from HLM is a fantastic opportunity. We are looking forward to all that the partnership brings. Dà chànan, Dà Chultar, Iomadh Cothrom (Two languages, two cultures, many opportunities),” commented Donalda McComb, Head Teacher at Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu (Glasgow Gaelic School).
