Our work experience placements, 17-year old, Tom Bolland and Chloe Storton joined us last week. Whilst they were at Creative Shed Agency, they did more than just make the obligatory cups of teas and coffees. They worked on business and marketing plans, designs, blog writing and so much more.
What do they want to do after leaving Sixth Form?
Tom expressed he wanted to work in Marketing when he leaves Sixth Form but isn’t sure if he wants to carry out an NVQ or attend University to obtain a degree. Chloe is not sure what she wants to do yet but is definitely keen to attend University to earn a degree in her chosen subject once she decides.
Both students are Sixth Form students from our local school, Sherburn High School.
So what did Chloe and Tom get up to?
Whilst guiding them in the right direction, we let Chloe and Tom have free reign over their creativity and ideas while working on various projects. We even let them write about their week with us which will be uploaded to our blog over the next few weeks.
It wasn’t all fun and games during their week with us! Both Tom and Chloe had to learn that a vital part of marketing is research. They both carried out their own research and even helped us update some of our websites that we manage for our clients.
