In The Know – Get Creative this Summer!
This week our newsletter takes a look at some creative learning opportunities for young people! The summer holidays are a perfect time for young people to explore the vast range of careers which are available to them and set goals for the future. Here are three creative events to introduce you to new careers!
Interested in the digital world?
Vodafone brings you this unique camp which provides a simple introduction to the hottest technologies in a day. The camp is designed for young people aged 14-18 who are interested about pursuing a career in the digital world.

Architecture workshops with RIBA
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) host a variety of workshops to introduce young people to the field of architecture. One of the exciting workshops available this August is a design day where young people aged 11-15 will be challenged to make a small wind powered generator and to design a building that will incorporate it.
