Forth Valley Play Mentors Celebrate Success

Nine successful graduates of the Play Mentor programme celebrated with family and friends recently at an awards ceremony at Forth Valley College Alloa campus. Play Mentor, which is managed by the NHS Forth Valley health promotion service in partnership with Aberlour Child Care Trust, runs for 10 weeks and gives young women an opportunity to study play and child development at college and undertake work placements in Clackmannanshire primary schools and nurseries.

Mary Scott Watson, from NHS Forth Valley’s Health Promotion Service, said: “The Play Mentors have done a fantastic job. Some of them are about to start volunteering for play and childcare organisations and others are moving onto college or stepping up to new responsibilities in their high schools. We are all really proud of them.”
