Makerpreneur-Sheffield

This programme introduces young people (11-16) to digital fabrication and enterprise through a combination of training, product development and retail – the learners are given the opportunity to make a product which is sold online. Throughout this process the learners explore methods of generating ideas, harnessing their creativity by designing and prototyping their product idea.

Following the development of the product, the learners are introduced to digital marketing by using social media, google adwords and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) as a way to improve the visibility of their product. The final step of the programme is preparing for retail; this includes product photography, keyword research, product description and packaging.

This programme is delivered as part of the Alternative Provisions for schools and all referral must come through the schools or local authority.
