School Craft Competition

The School Craft Competition, run in conjunction with Glasgow City Council Education Services, seeks to recognise and reward traditional craft work undertaken by pupils as part of the SQA Standard and Higher Grade Craft and Design syllabuses. Annually a total of approximately two hundred and fifty pupils from fifteen to twenty secondary schools within Glasgow participate.

Their work is judged according to the following broad criteria: innovation and inspiration of design, technical achievement and execution and practical relevance to the individual.

Prizes are awarded to some forty or fifty pupils in the categories of woodwork, plastic and metalwork at a ceremony held in the Trades Hall attended by senior representatives of Glasgow City Council, Glasgow City Council Education Services and the Trades House.

In 2006 the remit of the Competition was expanded to include participants in the Culinary Excellence Programme run by Glasgow City Council Education Services as part of the SQA Hospitality Intermediate 2 course. This course covers hospitality skills such as Chef and Front of House skills.
