Added fizz

A Coca-Cola education programme in the UK, with a base at East Kilbride, has been given a Big Tick - a nationally recognised symbol of excellence in business practice from British Trade in the Community.

The East Kilbride Education Centre provides curriculum-based activities for secondary pupils, covering business management, marketing, enterprise and ICT.

Coca-Cola Enterprises employs full-time, qualified teachers to manage its centres and East Kilbride manager Carol Anderson is responsible for ensuring the centre is aligned to A Curriculum for Excellence.

Jim Docherty, depute general secretary of the Scottish Secondary Teachers'

Association, said he was not opposed to private companies such as Coca-Cola becoming involved in education per se, but he stressed that the name of the company should not be "overly pushed" to children.
