MANAGER’S FINAL REPORT Student: Kristina Lazarides Company: Creative Youth Network Summary of overall performance Kristina was a real asset to the Fashion Friday Course. She worked closely with the lead tutor Andree and supported the young people in the group each week with creative ideas, Kristina also worked closely with our marketing team to create visuals for the blogs. Kristina was photographing the young people and the end products of each session. She really helped in supporting the marketing by broadcasting the events of the course, this will help to encourage more people to show an interest in further courses. Skills and strengths: Kristina is incredibly Personable/approachable, she makes everyone feel at ease that she works with Can communicate on lots of different levels and to young people with varying degrees of vulnerability. Kristina is a problem solver and nothing seems an issue. She thinks creatively in regards to the course, the pupils and the course outcomes. Punctual, works to deadlines. Gave a varied overview of the course through photography. Kristina dealt with the organisation of the volunteers, models, designers and make-up artists incredibly. She was focused, efficient, whist remaining calm and approachable. She got everyone to their places on time and communicated to all staff and volunteers in an approachable manner. Further development needs I would like to work with Kristina on more of the planning elements of the course. This is not something that shewas involved in, but think that she could develop these skills and they would give her a holistic approach to what she is doing. It would be great if Kristina would be interested in more of the teaching element as I think with the relevant support she has the skills and approach needed to do this. Please share any additional feedback or comments: I am so pleased to have had Kristina on board. She fit into the group immediately, was always busy, helpful and cheerful. She will do very well in what she does because of how she is as a person. I wish her all the best Will you be interested in future placements? YES How can we help you with this? We will let you know when future courses are starting and whether this could be an opportunity for us to work together again.
