I have been lucky enough to work for social enterprise; SharpFutures, that specializes in helping young people into careers within the creative and digital sector.
Whilst working there, I was often given a lot of responsibility and also the chance to implement some of my ideas to make new ideas into projects and campaigns. One of the key things I worked on – which I am quite proud of – is MCR Greater. Read on if you would like to find out more and how I was involved.
MCR Greater is a free, collaborative listings website for Creative, Digital and Tech learning events across Greater Manchester.
The aim is to provide an easily searchable resource for Schools, Colleges, Universities, Families and anyone else interested in developing their digital skills at free to attend events.
MCR Greater has been developed by three key individuals from SharpFutures – Myself, Aleena Sharif; the project and social media manager, Ihtezaz Anwar; the website developer and technical lead, and Lewis Marsh; the graphic designer and branding consultant.
The blog is a story from our perspectives as individuals who made this idea a reality. We detail the challenges faced and our experiences along the way in which you can read about by clicking here.
If you would like to be involved with working on MCR Greater, SharpFutures Discover offer a work experience programme in which pupils are given the chance to work on our live website. Find out how you can get involved in MCR Greater via work experience by clicking here.
