Future Fridays – it’s yours to make


Our secondary school week now provides a fantastic range of activities for young people on Friday afternoons in all secondary pupils.

Future Fridays success - June 2022

Future Fridays - Hot Chocolate Club

Future Fridays - Work Experience

Future Fridays - Career in the Spotlight

We're providing our young people with outstanding opportunities to develop their potential across a range of areas including:

  • Enterprise and employability
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Attainment and achievement
  • Leadership skills

The fresh and innovative programme spans the fields of employability, music, sport and arts, health and wellbeing, digital learning, outdoor education, and academic and leadership development.

These will give young people greater opportunities to be job-ready, independent, confident and better equipped for post-school experiences.

We already have partner organisations including VANL, Young Scot, SportScotland, New College Lanarkshire and Skills Development Scotland ready to deliver a range of exciting experiences for our young people to enjoy.

After all, it’s your future, so grab opportunities while you can.

For more information, contact your school directly.

Our goals

One of our key goals is to help children and young people for their future.

We want to help our pupils understand how their skills can be taken into the 'real world' and to help develop new skills and experiences away from a typical school curriculum.

Our schools are offering pupils:

  • In-school activities
  • College classes
  • Activities delivered by other council services
  • Experiences with local businesses
  • Activities and opportunities with other council partner organisations

All of these will provide our young people with a range of new skills and experiences to take with them throughout their lives.
