Dr. Ewan Kirk interviewed by The Scotsman on trust’s support for Glasgow schools pilot

Our founder, Ewan Kirk, is featured in The Scotsman discussing the Turner Kirk Trust’s recent support for an innovative pilot course being rolled out across disadvantaged schools in Glasgow. The project, led via the University of Glasgow, aims to improve primary school children’s confidence and aptitude with STEM subjects through spatial skills training.

He said in the interview: “When you support a project, what you're really doing is supporting the people who are running it. And the team at Glasgow were incredibly forthright, helpful, easy to deal with, credible, smart – they were everything that we wanted them to be, so that made it very easy to support it.”
