YouPro Celebration Event Takes Place in the UK

A YouPro Project celebration event took place at Central College Nottingham in the UK on Wednesday 5th February 2014. Learners who have recently completed the YouPro training and work placement programme attended, along with new learners, representatives from partner businesses, College staff and local media. The YouPro project trains young people in social media and online promotion for business, then arranges work placements for them with local businesses.

At the event, learners showcased some of the work they have done on the programme. The work included promotional videos developed for local businesses, original concepts for advertising campaigns, and social media / web development initiatives. Attendees from local businesses commented on the quality of the work; feedback from business has been extremely positive.

Learners were then presented with certificates of completion. Lewis Ansell (left) completed the programme in January 2014. All of the learners who completed have provided excellent feedback on the project; several learners will go into apprenticeships relevant to the programme, and one learner has been offered full-time employment by his work placement company.

The project is scheduled to run again, beginning in February 2014. If you are interested in participating in the project as a learner or partner business, get in touch with us.
