On the 6th of April the team at A Star Media attended an event hosted by the Mansfield Learning Partnership held at the Civic Centre for post 16 learners. This was an extra special day as our very own team member (Katrina) helped to organise the whole event!
The aim of the day was to raise awareness amongst young people about the range of opportunities available to them locally. The event focused on employability, enterprise, apprenticeships and further education as well as the vision for the future of Mansfield.
To make the day even more interesting, the students were able to interact with real business owners including our video production team. So after relaxing with a cup of tea and a biscuit (perks of the job) we waited patiently for our young entrepreneurs to enter.
At the end of the event feedback was given to detail what they felt they had learnt (apparently business owners like to talk). Lucky for A Star Media one courageous student volunteered to assist in a presentation with Katrina. Even though he expressed his concerns about his public speaking skills we were more than impressed.
The day was a smashing success even if we do say so ourselves, and we continuously look forward to supporting the students in Mansfield and working alongside the Mansfield Learning Partnership!
