SECTOR PARTNER EXPERIENCES (sPE):

Sector-Partner Experiences (SPE) are opportunities allow students to gain real-world experiences working with an industry partner. In ICT, this could be any number of design or media projects that are produced to solve problems for businesses in the community. 

 

For example, does your business need a rebranding? Our team of students will visit your location to see what materials you need (logo, brochures, signage, etc.). Students will be provided a design brief and specifications for the project and then in teams will work to solve the problem. Rebranding designs would then be presented back to your company for feedback.

 

This is an invaluable experience for students to create something real, and your business also benefits by seeing creative options from a variety of skilled students.
