Miriam Mathie wins place on the Digital Internship Programme

Congratulations go to Miriam Mathie in S5 who was successful in winning a place on the Digital Internship Programme with the Scottish National Centre of Languages (SCILT) in May.

Miriam was one of over 100 applicants and 40 pupils interviewed for only 6 positions. This is a fantastic opportunity where Miriam will learn about digital media and promote language learning. Miriam will take up her role in August and will fulfil her duties whilst also studying further Highers. She recently took part in a training day at Strathclyde University Confucious Institute for Scottish Schools (CISS) and here she tells us a little a bit her experience.

“The SCILT/CISS training day was absolutely amazing. We got detailed training within audience, content, planning and safety whilst working in our small group of 6 to come up with our work schedule for the future. It was lovely to hear from SCILT/CISS employees about their experiences and give us insight into what we should try and aim to do with our project. They allowed us to take lead as well as get to know each other so well that we all stepped out of training as good friends. Languages are so important, not only do they push you career-wise but give you amazing opportunities to make connections you’ll always keep.”
