Last night, February 2nd, saw the completion of Surrey Heath Borough Council’s first Youth Marketing Academy.
The course, run in conjunction with Camberley Theatre, lasted four months and four students from the Lower Sixth Form at Farnborough Hill College in Farnborough, were presented with their certificates by the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Valerie White.
The students were given a concert at Camberley Theatre to market, using skills they learned via online learning sessions hosted by digital marketing experts, including Jon Sharkey (Head of Marketing for Tourism South East) Zoe Cairns (International Social Media Speaker).
The students successfully marketed the concert, featuring two of the artists due to perform at this summer’s Camberley International Festival, Sam Horton and Brightr.
Jo Bartlett Events and Marketing officer for Surrey Heath Borough Council said, ‘It was very rewarding to be able to help the students gain an insight into the world of modern marketing. We wish them all the best for the future and hope the knowledge they gained from the Youth Marketing Academy will stand them in good stead in their chosen careers’.
The next Youth Marketing Academy has sixth form students from Collingwood College in Camberley, who are working towards an event at the theatre on March 29th.
