Rachel was blown away this m orning by the work of St Johns Nat 5 Administration students and Greenhillock Glamping staff. A brilliant example of Developing the Young Workforce activity; students Aimee Adams, Casey Sloane and Anna McMahon delivered training to Kate and Beth of Greenhillock so that they can use social media as an effective marketing tool. The students get the invaluable experiences of engaging with a real local business, of working to a brief, of researching, of presenting and of exploring social media as a marketing tool. Greenhillock Glamping gain CPD for their staff and a new marketing opportunity as well as getting to engage with and give back to their community.

Rachel had a very insightful and interesting night at the Mix In on Thursday 15th. Run by Creative Dundee and Scottish Enterprise and hosted by Hospitalfield. This was an opportunity for local companies, individuals, and organisations to come together to learn more about cultural tourism and the potential sitting dormant in Dundee and Angus and the surrounding area.

Journeycall is an Arbroath based contact centre, providing services within the public transport and smartcard industries. An initial meeting between Claire, DYW employer liaison advisor, and the business highlighted the range of opportunities for young people in this growing industry. Journeycall wanted to communicate this to young people and felt involvement with local schools could achieve this. They wanted to partner with a local school to promote the range of jobs within Journeycall and their parent company ESP Group. It was now down to Claire to connect them with a school partner.
