Guest blog from our Italian work experience hero, Ciro!

This summer, City College Brighton and Hove hosted some Italian Erasmus+ students, for work experience at our Central Campus. In this guest blog, we hear from one of these students Ciro Figlini, who came to work with us in the City College Marketing team!
I, Ciro Figlini, am working for the Marketing and Communications Team at City College. I’ve helped them in organising two important events dedicated to the next academic year’s students: the Welcome Day and the Taster Day.
I prepared the materials for the students coming to these two events: bags with gadgets inside of them and I’ve taken part in the meet & greet of the students, making them feel welcome in the College.
I’ve also helped the team with my suggestions about the City College Website and Prospectus. I also helped with the management of some data related to new admissions in the various courses which are offered by the College.
I feel very glad to have had this opportunity, I think this experience is very useful to improve my English and my social skills too: you can learn how to put your shyness away to have a conversation with people you hadn’t known before.
Being a part of a work team is an experience which every student should try because you feel valued and important and can reach determined objectives, that every member of the team is interested in.
I’ve really liked working at City College because the work environment is very welcoming and the staff are very friendly with everybody, I’ve had a great time!
