Falkirk college pupils to benefit from Edinburgh Airport equipment donation
Engineering apprentices at Forth Valley College (FVC) will be able to broaden their educational horizon courtesy of a donation of new equipment.
Edinburgh International Airport has handed over a power drill and other kit such as testing meters and oscilloscopes to students at its Falkirk campus ahead of Scottish Apprenticeship Week (March 2-6).
The airport sends several of its mechanical and electrical modern apprentices (MAs) to FVC for training.
MA electrical technician Harry Chalmers (20) and his boss Brian Anderson, the senior engineering manager at Edinburgh International Airport, helped deliver the new kit to the college.

Lorraine Kerr, FVC business development partner, said: “What an excellent donation of equipment this is from Edinburgh international Airport.
“It will certainly be put to good use in the new engineering superworkshop and will benefit their own MAs and countless other trainee engineers. We can’t thank them enough and it is a great example of how businesses can support the work of the college.”
