HARLOW College marketing department is working on a unique project, collaborating with Stansted Airport to open doors and opportunities for future students.

Simon Boyce, the head of marketing, is working tirelessly at events, to inspire students to pursue a career in a range of interesting career paths.

‘Working at the college for about 17 years, I have had a number of roles. I started out working part time as a learning support worker, then realised I was passionate about art and design’ said Simon.

He added ‘After leaving teaching eight years ago, I started running the admissions department. It was when I was working with schools that I decided to get more involved with marketing campaigns.

‘The development of social media has definitely changed marketing. Digital marketing has more impact on our audience rather print marketing. This is actually convenient as it’s cheaper also,’ said Simon. ‘Apprenticeships are crucial and work experience is important if you want a career in marketing due to it being competitive. Students need to be able to make contributions to the industry.

‘Currently, we are involved in a unique project with a collaboration with Stansted Airport. This will help students with business opportunities and develop different skills for varied jobs such as engineering, retail, catering and event managing.’

I am a strong character, who is determined to follow my goals and achieve my dreams. Ever since I was able to write, I would always carry a notebook and pen with me and I would fill the pages with songs, poems and stories. Writing has always been an outlet for me, a way for me to express my emotions and to overcome any difficulties. I used to want to be a singer-songwriter, though; unfortunately I have not been blessed with the best singing voice, so that dream had to go. Nevertheless, I still write songs and maybe one day, I will hear someone singing them on the radio. My dream would be to become a successful writer in the future; when people hear my name, I want them to think of a particular novel or article that I’d written. I would love to work in publishing or screenplays because I feel it will ignite a spark inside of me, if I see my name in print or in the credits of a film. I have a range of topics I am passionate about, from films and TV series as they give me inspiration for my own work, to being involved with promoting the rights of disabled people, as that’s a subject close to my heart. So far, my articles have covered a range of subjects; profile pieces, disability rights, college open evening, the new Stansted Airport College, and the Apple Distinguished Status at Harlow College.
