A SPECIAL event has been held to celebrate 21 men and women completing the Skills for Success vocational training programme.

Organised by Museums Galleries Scotland the programme allows people to gain experience working in museums across the country.

Elliot Melton completed the programme at the Scottish Maritime Museum and will continue working at the museum in visitor services.

He said: “I feel like I’ve been able to work upon myself and increase some of the skills I have, which I’ll be able to use in my future.

“I’ve really enjoyed meeting new people and all my fellow trainees. I know what I want to do and I know what I need to do. I feel like the programme has given me the drive and motivation to go get it.”
