Minister on a talent hunt

11th August 2006 at 01:00
Robert Brown, Deputy Education Minister, has launched a Scottish Executive consultation on plans to help more young people become involved in activities and youth organisations. On a visit to Airdrie's @Home Centre, where involvement in the project led to one band signing a record contract, Mr Brown said: "We need to find ways of opening up opportunities for young people to make the most of their talents and interests. Access to a wide range of activities and centres like this plays a vital role.

"Activities like this can compliment what is going on at school and sometimes provide an alternative way to learn and achieve for young people who don't get on well in formal education."
