SHETLAND College UHI has announced that two of its recent graduates have been recruited to work for the further education establishment.
Jacqui Clark, who graduated with a first class honours degree in Scottish cultural studies, has joined the college as student engagement and communication assistant.
Meanwhile, Klaudia Grubska has joined as part-time guidance coordinator, having graduated earlier this year with an honours degree in psychology.
Jacqui was involved with student representation whilst studying at the college and she said: “I’m looking forward to working with students to ensure their voice is heard and to help them get the most out of their learning experience.”
She has previously worked in the local arts and charity sectors and has “extensive experience” of project management and marketing. She will work alongside existing post holder Greg McCarron on a part-time basis.
Klaudia said: “I’m very enthusiastic about being back at the Shetland College UHI. Having recently graduated from the university myself, I hope to be able to offer support and advice to students in regards to building and growing their forthcoming careers.”
Shetland College operations manager Sue Smith said she was “delighted to see two graduates of the college return to roles which are central to supporting students and enhancing learning experiences”.
She added: “I’m sure their own experience, having been students, will help them to provide excellent support to current and future students.”
