Do you know a young person who was looking forward to a work experience placement in a design studio or a marketing agency this summer? Maybe you’re a student yourself who is missing out on that opportunity due to COVID-19 restrictions? We should have had two students from local schools with us over the next couple of weeks – but it was not to be this year.
So – we’ve put together a remote ‘virtual work experience’ – two briefs for you to experience the real world of virtual home-working – just like our full-time staff are doing at the moment! In our normal work experience programme we give students a project to work on as well as learning software skills, working on real projects, and shadowing different members of staff.
While we can’t do that this year, we can still offer a virtual experience. You can download the briefs below. One is a marketing brief and the other a design brief for a fictitious motor dealer, based on a real-life project. Take your pick, or you could even work on both of them, and send your ideas to email@example.com.You can use design software or sketch your ideas, come up with just a logo or a whole suite of literature, some initial ideas, or a full-blown marketing plan! We’ll then give you feedback and, with your permission, we may even publish some of the creative and marketing ideas on social media and on our website!
Click to download the briefs below… We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
PLEASE NOTE – WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY RUNNING THE VIRTUAL WORK EXPERIENCE PROGRAMME. WE RAN THIS SCHEME FROM 2020 TO 2022 AND IT WAS REALLY SUCCESSFUL – A PLEASURE TO RECEIVE SO MANY SUBMISSIONS OF SUCH A HIGH QUALITY FROM SO MANY SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES THROUGHOUT THE UK.
We hope to run the programme again in the future and will re-post new briefs at that time.
