Summer holidays are great, but they can become a bit.... BORING. Getting some work experience would break the monotony, and is really valued in sixth form and university applications.

So here's an easy way to do it this summer!

Why bother?

Because brands are everywhere!  They can account for up to 70% of a business' value.

Every business, whether it's your hot new start-up or an established company, needs at least one. 

Immerse yourself in what it takes to build a strong brand - by learning all the best practice, then applying what you've learnt each day.

WHO RUNS THIS COURSE?

Sarah Robb is a brand strategist who has worked on many of the world’s biggest brands.
(And a mum of two teens).

She spent a decade in the world's best branding, advertising and market research agencies in New York, London and San Francisco, and has been an independent brand strategist for another 10+ years, working directly with CEOs who want to identify or refresh what their brand is all about. 

She wrote the chapter on branding in McGraw Hill’s’ 'Big Book of Marketing' and runs Brand Strategy Academy, a course that teaches people how to do brand strategy. Recently, she ran a work experience day for Year 10 students and loved it so much she created this summer school.

(See what they said about it below….)

Her first job was in Japan, teaching middle school students how to speak English.

She finds this easier.

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS?


You're between 14 and 16. You don't need to be studying any particular GSCE or be 'good' at any any particular topic.

The world of branding includes so many different skillsets, you're likely to find at least one part that really suits yours!  

You just need to be able to commit to working from 11:00 - 13:00, Monday to Friday, July 29 - August 2.

You may get really engrossed in the activities and want to do a full day each day, but these 2 hours are the minimum requirement.
