Be Inspired… be very Inspired! 05 March 2013
We are pleased to welcome Living's first work experience student of 2013 to the studio this week.
This is the third year we have been working with Inspire! which is an independent and local charity that supports the education, training and development of young people by forming mutually beneficial partnerships between businesses and schools. Our close proximity to Hackney means we have the pleasure of welcoming two to three students per year to our studio in Shoreditch for a two week placement whereby they are introduced to a working environment, a passionate and creative team and are able to gain some first hand experience on how a business operates day-to-day.
Not only do we welcome the students to our studio, our staff take part in various workshops throughout the year in Hackney primary and secondary schools, helping to educate pupils on working life and raise their levels of aspiration. Our participation in the Inspire! programme goes some way to highlighting the world of choices and opportunities that may otherwise have remained out of reach for these pupils.
