The pupils were taking part in a week long “What-If Programme”, organised by CECA Scotland and delivered by experienced trainer and construction professional, Yvonne Gilfillan.
The innovative coaching and motivational programme, targeted at young people in high school, is designed to encourage, guide and empower young people to visualise, aim and succeed in achieving success.
Throughout the interactive programme, the tips, techniques and tools for success are shared, enabling each participant to be the “very best version of themselves” and ultimately to achieve their dreams.
Included in the course are sessions on:
- Visualisation techniques for success
- Overcoming negatives
- Fairness, Inclusion and Respect
- Active listening
- Role models and support networks
- Social media – acceptable language, images, posts
- Health and wellbeing for success
- Behavioural expectations form employers
On each day, a commitment was made to reinforce learning at home, including waking up in the morning on the first alarm call, practicing visualisation to gain clarity on wishes and goals and to consider potential opportunities based on strengths explored during the week.
Following mock interviews on the final day, all participants received a completion certificate from CECA Scotland Chief Executive, Grahame Barn.
We’re delighted to have received extremely positive feedback both from the participants and teachers at St Modans High.

Yvonne will also be presenting at Scotland Build next week.
