The Caledonian Club is an exciting educationally based project with a long-term vision to facilitate true social change in the communities Glasgow Caledonian University serves. The vision for the Caledonian Club is unique in that it proposes a linked set of activities sustained over a period of 15- 30 years. Once enrolled as a Caledonian Club member, members gain access to GCU’s stimulating, open and welcoming learning environment. We work with young people, from nursery age through all school stages and their families to raise life-long learning aspirations, and equip members with key life skills. We achieve this by offering targeted nursery, primary and secondary schools a linked set of activities delivered by staff and students from GCU.
The Caledonian Club employs GCU students as Mentors to take part in the activities. Not only does this give students the opportunity to earn money in a flexible part-time job, it also allows them to fulfil a role as an active citizen, develop skills to improve future employment prospects and meet and work with other GCU students from a variety of disciplines.
