Awareness and understanding of the world of work is integral to the delivery of education and this is best achieved through business and schools working in partnership. This term Hatfield’s Business and Enterprise Academy, Onslow St Audrey’s School have been working very closely on a very ‘Real’ Project Brief for Isuzu Trucks (UK) Ltd.
As a Business & Enterprise Academy we are constantly encouraging all of our students to develop both their Enterprise, Entrepreneurial and Employability skills and attributes. We endeavour to demonstrate to all of our students how the business world functions and operates and aim to give students the confidence to make the seamless transition from school life to working life. Above all we focus our students’ on how their skills and work can be used or developed as a business opportunity.
ISUZU Christmas Card Competition
The Isuzu Trucks (UK) Ltd Christmas card competition was a great success this year with some fabulous entries. The winning entry by Lillie Nott (Year 12) was so well received that she was congratulated by the Marketing Director.
The final design will be sent all around the world during this festive period. Now that’s something impressive to add to your portfolio!
The Marketing Director was so very impressed by all the entrants, he has asked three students to find a way of making their design animated. Students have set to work and are developing ways of creating stars that fall, baubles that twirl and colours that sparkle. In addition one student is also having her design printed on toy trucks which will be handed out as Christmas gifts to Isuzu clients. This will all form part of the companies ‘Digital Media’ Christmas Marketing Campaign.
Maddy Savva: ‘It has been an exciting project to work on with Isuzu. I never thought ‘Trucks’ as a subject matter could create such great Christmas Card Designs.
Bryony Beardshall said, ‘I have never worked on a ‘Real’ project brief before with ‘Real’ clients. This has been a great learning experience.
We would like to thank Isuzu Trucks (UK) Ltd for their continued support in working with our students, and look forward to collaborating in future projects.
