For my work experience I spent the week in marketing and helping out with some of the things. It was a busy week as it was transition and also PBL (Project Based Learning) for years 7,8 and 9. 

One of the first things I did was I planned and wrote some news articles about the walking sports day and the year 11 prom. To do this i did some investigating work to find content for both articles and finally they were uploaded onto the Walbottle website. 

Another thing I did in my week was that I followed a brief to take photographs so that they could be used in digital marketing. The photos were of the kids doing their PBL activities. 

The next thing I did was some assistant marketing tasks such as gathering information and quotes for the slideshows in the hubs. 

I also developed a marketing plan to promote the school blog and to get more students involved. To do this, I thought about the messaging I could use as well as the images, calls to action and what media channels I’d use the promotion on.

 Another thing I did was designed and produced content for posters and a slideshow to also promote the school blog. I followed the branding guidelines to do this. 

The next thing I did was designed a postcard for the  Year 10’s to say thank you to their work experience placements and I also helped organise the world record attempt on monday and attended a meeting about it and also helped out with the community showcase on friday and helped to organise that.

I have had a good week in marketing and i have learnt a lot about Marketing and it is something I would look at doing in the future.
