An example of a community partner is a Coastcare organisation that wants its event advertised. Students would plan and produce a range of communication products to advertise the Coastcare event to their community.
You will be surprised at how effective students can be with their communication projects. Most community members will be more interested in reading a kids poster than a high quality poster. Don’t underestimate what can be achieved.
Students can have a big impact by helping their community partners communicate to the wider community. It may be an educational message, a request to the community for support, asking for a change in behaviour, advertising an event, seeking membership, supporting a campaign etc.
Work with your partner to find a suitable communication project that will help the work they do and provide students with a creative learning experience.
