Spanish students and staff have been enjoying a visit to New College Lanarkshire which gave them the chance to take part in activities across central Scotland.

New College Lanarkshire’s Motherwell campus hosted students from Madrid on their 21st International Exchange Programme.

The 11 students and three staff from the Colegio de Educacion Especial, Nino Jesus del Remedio participated in a programme of cultural and sports activities along with students and staff from the Support for Learning Department (SFL).

The activities includes taking part in some classes, visiting Glasgow, Edinburgh Castle, the Falkirk Wheel and New Lanark.

Students from the Motherwell campus are due to visit the Spanish college in May.

Head of Support for Learning, Gail Dennett, said: ‘At New College Lanarkshire, we are committed to supporting all our learners.

“We recognise that everyone is different and we do our best to provide appropriate and effective assistance to reflect this.

“International exchange trips such as the one we are currently hosting for our Spanish colleagues are not only educational but fun and inspirational for everyone involved.”

Curriculum leader Heather Dysart said: “This valuable educational exchange programme enables students to learn more about another culture in a real-life experiential situation.

“In addition to cultural activities the students have an opportunity to learn some of the language, try different food and experience and it is something which all the participating students look forward to each year.”

New College Lanarkshire offers a wide range of qualifications to support learners with personal and learning needs, for more information visit New College Lanarkshire
