Carmel College

Student Teacher

I took part in a 2 week work placement at Carmel College, in Merseyside. The placement involved me sitting in on all graphic design lessons, helping students with idea generating, and getting involved in tutorials.

During the placement i was able to take 2/3 classes on my own. This was a massive step for me, because i've never been responsible for so many people, and it was a great experience. Ive taken a lot away from this placement, and will definitely consider teaching in the future.

Junior Designer

I was able to get a placement at the marketing comparison site yoursuresave.com for a week, in their graphic design department. Its the first time ive worked in an office environment, rather than a studio, so it was slightly different to anything else ive experienced.

During my time there, i was able to help out with the development of their new site, and create a wide range of branding, including online banners, online flyers, social networking promotion and loads more.
