PLOTT recently had ambitious student Lewis Smith, from The Coleshill School, to spend a week in the studio working shadowing the team and gaining an insight into the various roles within a branding agency.
It got us thinking about how important work experience is to this age group (age 15 / year 10). Being a small, and very busy, team we were concerned about the distracting impact on our work schedules, but we were committed to providing Lewis a valuable snapshot into working life.
What we didn’t expect was how much we gained from the experience.
Being a small team, it was a challenge to incorporate Lewis into the working day. However, it was such a positive experience it made us realise how valuable such exposure and knowledge is for young people facing life changing decisions.
