Apprenticeship Week 2nd – 6th March 2020

We are now at the end of Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2020, we want to share our positive experience working with two Foundation Apprentices. Which is a fantastic initiative, beneficial to both the students and organisations.

Alex and Molly, Digital Media Foundation Apprentices from New College Lanarkshire, have joined us here at Skills Exchange SCIO on work placement.  Both students have been working exceptionally hard on Skills Exchange SCIO’s new YouTube channel.

Skills Exchange has recently been developing its digital presence and Alex and Molly have been a great asset to the team.  With a focus on producing video content, they’ve been the absolute dream team, working perfectly together to create short films for our YouTube channel.  

They’ve put together a short video about Skills Exchange SCIO showcasing what we offer as a charity and where you can find us. They’ve done all the work from start to finish;  researching, storyboarding, planning, filming group sessions to gather footage and taking the initiative to interview some of our young participants on our programmes.

A huge thank you once again to Alex and Molly for all their work. We appreciate all the time and effort that goes into producing a video and you have both done a wonderful job. We look forward to seeing what you come up with next.

We’d also encourage other organisations to think about offering work placements to Foundation Apprentices. This has been the first time we’ve been involved and it’s been a great experience for all the staff and I hope for Alex and Molly too!
