Sinead scoops prize-winning work experience at the University Campus of Football Business
Congratulations to Sinead Hamilton, in Year 12, who has won a week of work experience at the UCFB, after taking part in a student survey during lockdown. Students were invited to complete the UCFB survey, a Higher Education institution offering undergraduate and postgraduate university degrees in the football business, sport and events industries.
Four work shadowing opportunities for Year 12 students were offered as prizes and Sinead will be carrying out the work experience face-to-face in Manchester later in the summer term.
UCFB are now working with Sinead to identify her key areas of interest and look to bespoke the work shadowing to her personal needs. This could be made up of videography, marketing, research, coaching or other areas.
Sinead, who is applying for university and is interested in degree courses in Business Management at Leeds and Manchester, said: “UCFB have said I can learn about whatever I am most interested in. I am hoping to find out more about marketing, branding and event management. I will be based at their offices in Manchester and will also go to the Etihad stadium.”
The purpose of the survey was to understand perceptions of higher education from four key groups: school/college students, school/college staff, parents and manager-level industry professionals. The survey aimed to better understand the main motivations and barriers behind choosing to go to university, the quality and relevance of information available and the values that are placed on higher education compared with other immediate career paths.
