We recently had the pleasure of Elliott Holmes, who joined High Profile for one week’s work experience. Elliott, who attends Meopham Secondary School, was given the task of producing a website, promoting Gravesham as a tourist destination.

This is a project we set our work experience students. It gives them a real insight into a number of key skills that go into producing a website on a professional level.

Skills Elliott learnt during his week were:

  • Research
  • Planning
  • Photography
  • Copywriting
  • Website architecture
  • Website building
  • Marketing

 

Here is what Elliott made of his week with us.

I didn’t realise what went into producing a website on a commercial level. I am leaving school in the summer and still haven’t decided what I want to do. This week has given me valuable experience working in the marketing industry, whilst picking up some basic skills.

I was also encouraged by High Profile to set up a LinkedIn profile to showcase my experience and achievements. This is now online and I will be actively seeking an apprenticeship – all suggestions gratefully received!

Peter Scutts, Managing Director at High Profile commented:

I was most impressed with Elliott. He picked up the basics quickly and showed promise with his photography and IT skills. I am confident he will be an asset to any company who is looking to take on a young apprentice.
