Enterprising Brothers Combine Study With Running Their Own Business.

17th September 2013 <b>Enterprising</b> Brothers Combine Study With Running Their Own Business.

Two young enterprising brothers from Todmorden have enrolled onto a full time media course at Calderdale College at the same time as undertaking the pressures of running their own business.

Two young enterprising brothers from Todmorden have enrolled onto a full time media course at Calderdale College at the same time as undertaking the pressures of running their own business.

The company started as a hobby run by their father, Paul, who handed over the reins when the brothers completed a previous course also achieved at Calderdale College. With continuing support from their father, Kyle and Reece Stansfield are aiming to boost their Sticker and T-shirt design company through learning more about what it takes to design and produce products for their audience.

Reece Stansfield said: “This course is in an ideal location for us, 5 minutes down the road saving serious travel time. We signed up for the course as it would give us experience in design, production and marketing. We have taken on the company this year to earn extra money but really want it to succeed.”

They joined the BTEC Level 1 in Creative Media course which is due to start at the Todmorden Community College Campus. It is a brand new exciting course where learners 16-18 will be involved in creating a visual identity through logo design, photography, film, graphics, promotional materials and set design.

Paul Stansfield said: “They did an IT course last year developing their skills in website design, they were even runners-up in the Most Enterprising Young Learner Award at the College VQ Awards and the new course really fits in with what Kyle and Reece want to do with the business.”

Places are still available on the course, for more information come along to the Open Day on Thursday 19th September 11.00am-3.30pm at Todmorden Community College. This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy live music and refreshments and sample what the course has to offer.
