Build Your Own Brand (English and Gaelic)

Course description and aims:
Over 60% of employers are now using online profiles and social media as a form of second CV. Your online profile is the picture you build of yourself for the world to view, but what information do you want your potential employer to know? This session will highlight the dos and don’ts of building your online profile – your ‘brand’, offering the opportunity to understand what good looks like and what is not so good. Following a 14 minute video from a leading PR firm learners will be asked to engage in group discussion and reflect on scenarios of whether they would ‘hire’ individuals based on their online profile. Pupils will be asked to create a short action plan of what they may change on their profiles and create some firm steps to building their online brand.

Tha còrr air 60% de luchd-fastaidh a-nis a’ cleachdadh ar n-ìomhaighean air-loidhne agus ar meadhanan sòisealta mar sheòrsa den dàrna CV. ’S e do phròifil air-loidhne dealbh dhiot a thogas tu gus sealltainn don t-saoghal cò th' annad. Ach dè a tha thu ag iarraidh a shealltainn?

Bidh an seisean seo a' soilleireachadh na rudan math is dona a tha ann a bhith a’ togail do phròifil air-loidhne - do ‘bhrand’, a ’toirt cothrom tuigse fhaighinn air cò ris a tha coltas math agus dè nach eil cho math.

Às deidh bhidio bho chompanaidh PR thèid iarraidh air luchd-ionnsachaidh a dhol an sàs ann an deasbad buidhne gus beachdan a thoirt seachdad air pròifilean air-loidhne eadar-dhealaichte. Thèid iarraidh air na sgoilearan plana gnìomh a chruthachadh a’ coimhead air na dh’fhaodadh iad atharrachadh air na pròifilean aca fhèin gus am brannd air-loidhne aca a thogail.

CivTech® is the Scottish Government’s award-winning innovative challenge programme. Its mission is to drive daring and innovation in the public sector, by collaboratively solving challenges that make people’s lives better. The programme harnesses entrepreneurial tech innovation and citizen engagement to improve public services and create economic development opportunities.

All of the solutions provided would need to have one thing in common: they would need to be future-facing.

The Change Challenge (FULL)

Course description and aims:

This course is now full and is unable to accept new participants.

Over the course of 8 weeks, pupils will use IT to engage in a range of small group activities within their own class to create a product or service designed to have a positive impact on the lives of someone in their immediate, local or global community. They will create their own company identity and brand; consider how they market their product and consider cost implications associated with this.

Our facilitator will ask groups to share their work on camera in order to check for understanding, generate discussion with higher order questioning and provide real-time feedback.

In week 7’s Pitch Showcase, pupils will present their ideas in a final 2-min presentation to our judging panel.

The final week will involve self-reflection of skills and qualities used throughout, along with feedback and awards provided by judging panel.
