College hosts ‘Magic of Marketing’ schools Event
19th January 2015
Newcastle-under-Lyme College (NULC) is hosting a ‘Magic of Marketing’ schools event on Wednesday 28 January in support of local company KMF’s Young Engineer of the Year Project 2015.
Pupils will be attending from 17 local schools along with sponsors from 18 different local, national and international companies including Costa Coffee, Michelin and Staffordshire University.
On the day Year 10 pupils will gain experience in key marketing principles including sales pitching, promotion and networking. This will help towards this year’s KMF Project where pupils are challenged to design, print and pitch a gadget which provides a business solution, using 3D laser printers to bring their gadgets to life
Organiser Lucy Hancock, Schools Relationship Manager at NULC, said: “We are delighted to be supporting KMF’s Young Engineer of the Year Project again as it is a great way for pupils to work with employers and the College supports this with the use of our fantastic facilities.”
Employers will be on hand to help prepare the Young Engineer competitors for the semi-final on Thursday 12 March at Britannia Stadium before they advance to the final round with Jason Bradbury from the Gadget Show judging the entries in June.
Val Tomlinson, Assistant Principal at NULC said: “Here at NULC we embrace technology of all types and this event creates a fantastic platform for the sponsor companies to mix with pupils and gain fresh insight by working with young people, enabling the sharing of ideas and business practice.”
