A former student of the current Campbeltown Grammar School, Abbie first stepped onto site as an employee three months ago.

Since then she has worked with her mentor, Morrison Construction Administrator Daniel Fee, before officially beginning her Modern Apprenticeship Level 2 Business and Administration this month.

Abbie will complete training through Argyll College, University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) in Campbeltown, as part of her Modern Apprenticeship. A lecturer from the college will offer support to Abbie throughout her course and will visit the site every eight weeks.

Morrison Construction Modern Apprentice, Abbie Mathieson said:

''I first heard about the Modern Apprenticeship with Morrison Construction while I was at school.

''I am really enjoying working in the site offices at the Campbeltown Grammar School project. I am happy to be working, gaining experience and earning at the same time.''

Morrison Construction Administrator, Daniel Fee said:

''It has been a privilege to be a mentor to Abbie, passing on what I know as she undertakes her Modern Apprenticeship. It is about Abbie developing those core skills she will need in a working environment.

''The educational and career opportunities we provide in the communities we work in are important to us as they ensure the positive impact of developments like Campbeltown Grammar School.''
