Training evening – Monday 20th January

The Lothian Area team are holding a training evening on Monday 20th January at St George’s School for Girls Garscube Terrace, Edinburgh. Registration 5.15pm and start at 5.30pm. Up to 4 students can attend and if the Finance Director is available then there is a workshop purely for the use of the YEUK finance package.

Happy New Year you and your team(s),

I hope you enjoyed a relaxing break and it’ not too painful to be back!
If your YE team is keeping an eye on the YE Lothian website they will know the final training date is Monday 20 January, at St Georges School for girls (the same as previous years). It’s in the low roof building ahead of you as you walk up the main drive.
This is a very informal session where we split into groups and discuss the video, interviews, presentations, reports and reports. We will also refresh the recording of financial data using YE-Online.
Historically, many students choose to skip this session, possibly because it runs from 5.15pm – 7pm, but I can’t stress enough it’s their loss. We will be giving out lots of tips, guidance and advice on how to carry out the final tasks as quickly and as effortlessly as possible. I can say from experience that those who join us generally produce the best results in the competition. And it’s still all to play for.
All team members are welcome but if only two or three can make it along that’s fine. Link Teachers and Business advisers are also very welcome – you’ll get a chance to hear what we are saying to the students and ask any questions you might have about the programme.
