Daisy Corporate Services deliver another successful live brief to Kirklees College students


Level 3 IT students at Kirklees College recently completed an exciting live brief from Daisy Corporate Services. The live brief, which is a mock work task set by an employer, asked students to design a website over a number of weeks before presenting their designs to an employer panel. The panel consisted of Sukhvir Singh and Faizan Ahmed, Daisy’s Web Design and Development Manager and Junior Digital Marketer, as well as their Early Careers Manager, Kate Slater.

Daisy Corporate Services have delivered a number of live briefs to the college’s Computing students before and have been integral to boosting their employability skills. 37 students have taken part in the project this year, providing them with quality work experience that they can add to their CVs.

Speaking about the project, Kate commented:

“It has been fantastic to partner with Kirklees College for this live project. For Daisy, building strong educational links locally to help us to create a future talent pipeline is crucial. Working together on projects like these enable us to bridge that all important gap between education and the workplace, giving the students the valuable opportunity to work on a project and gain feedback from our industry professionals. Long may the partnership continue!”

Euan Shaw, Work Experience Coach at Kirklees College said:

“I’d like to thank Daisy Corporate Services for their commitment to our Work Experience Programme. This live brief has been a brilliant opportunity for our students to work collaboratively to complete work that relates directly to their curriculum studies and then to present it back to a panel of experts who are on hand to provide industry standard feedback. It has been a pleasure to partner with Daisy Corporate Services for the last two years and I’m looking forward to working with them to arrange more valuable opportunities like this for 24/25!”

All full-time students at Kirklees College have work experience built into their timetable and experiences like live briefs, specifically related to their course, are a great way to introduce students to the sort of tasks they can expect in industry.
