Skills and Resources Gaps (As outlined in P3):
By using this plan, I will have a good opportunity to learn more web design languages, as outlined as a weakness in P2 and P3. I will do this after I have finished Long Road, during my summer holidays. I will use my time at university to build bigger and more complex websites.
I will learn to drive after my time at university which will help me get to different job interviews which are further away. This was identified as a weakness in P2 and P3.
By applying to jobs worldwide, I will make sure I am working for some of the best web design firms out there.
Finish Long Road Sixth Form College
Maintain Therfield Village Pre-School Website
Develop the National Hyacinth Collection Website
Look for more job opportunities in the Web Design sector
Complete the Google Digital Garage and get certified
Take a place at University of Gloucestershire
Create contacts with people in the industry and get part-time work experience in the sector
Learn to drive after university
Move abroad to America to work for SpaceX as a web developer.http://www.spacex.com/careers
I will finish Long Road
I will maintain Joe Bailey Photography
The National Hyacinth Collection website may fall through and result in no further work being produced. However, I still have the templates and started design, which I can show as part of my portfolio.
I may run out of time to complete the Google Digital Garage Certification, therefore I will do it at university.
I have an unconditional offer from The University of Gloucestershire, however, I might go to Southampton Solent University.
The university may not have appropriate contacts for me to make within the web design sector, so I may need to email web design firms and visit them to make my own contacts.
The main reason I haven’t learnt to drive now is I don’t have the sufficient funds. This may not change after university, so I will just have to use public transport.
Moving to another country is a big risk, and you have to be at the top of your field. If I can’t get a job in another country, I will settle for one in the UK.
