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.
