Accredited Learning Programme for young people. Recognising wider achievement.


NEW Volunteer- Fraser Munro- WELCOME

I am happy to introduce you to Fraser Munro. Fraser is a third year journalist student at Napier Uni, who has kindly agreed to help us with media and communications. We are absolutely delighted that Fraser is on board as a volunteer he will be able to have an outside perspective. Fraser will be looking after social media, with editorial rights being held by FOTA staff. He will also be writing articles on FOTA and the work that we do. 

We are really lucky to have Fraser volunteering with us. I am sure if we support him accordingly the placement will be a great success.
