Paul Marsh Managing Director of GSPK Design and Mark Hildred Creative Director of Apollo continue to strengthen their links with local schools and colleges.
Once again GSPK Design is doing its bit to encourage the next generation of entrepreneurs. Paul Marsh Managing Director of GSPK Design and Mark Hildred Creative Director of Apollo Creative (a subsidiary of GSPK Design) are continuing to strengthen their links with local schools and colleges. The intention is to give young students the opportunity to experience real-life working experiences, by sharing their knowledge and expertise.
Paul Marsh, MD of a local electronic design company, is set to start the new school semester by once again donating his time to support Young Enterprise – the UK’s leading business and enterprise education charity.
Young Enterprise offers a range of programmes, based on the principle of learning by doing, which brings volunteers from business into the classroom to work with teachers and students. Some of the programmes enable students to work together to run their own real company. Paul, who has successfully supported young enterprise as a business advisor for the last 4 years, says “I’m looking forward to another challenging, fun filled year. It’s great working with the kids and fantastic way of putting something back into the community.” Paul will be working as a business advisor with a group of budding entrepreneurial 6th formers at King James School in Knaresborough.
Meanwhile Mark Hildred of Apollo Creative is busily preparing a host of projects that will involve schools and colleges in York and North Yorkshire as a specialist advisor for the new National Diplomas for both Creative Media and IT. Apollo Creative specialises in the design, development and manufacture of interactive sound light and bubble products for a range of markets. Mark comments “Our range of products fit extremely well within the scope of the National Diploma courses and there are huge benefits to both us and the students working together.”
This role is in addition to Apollo’s ongoing support of the Creative Music Technology course at the University of Hull.
