Campus Blogger: Role Profile

While the Bloggers will be performing some elements of the counsellor role to operate a safe and successful programme, their primary focus is to produce content for the campus blogs. These blogs are read by the students, parents and staff and are updated throughout the day.

The Bloggers will endeavour to capture life on the programmes, whether in the classroom, in the common room or on an activity or excursion. Spending their time speaking and interacting with the international student body the bloggers can put the most creative and interesting elements of the programme online.

Campus bloggers will be passionate about social media, photography, journalism and blogging. They are great communicators, great with people, organised and switched on. They know how to make a blog article appeal to young people and parents and are interested in how that experience can be augmented with images and video.

Staff Testimonials

Laura

Campus Blogger

I feel really lucky to have had the opportunity to spend last summer working for ORA at Yarnton Manor and came away with really special lasting friendships and memories. I couldn’t have hoped for a lovelier or more supportive team and we quickly became really close. The experience was exciting, challenging and rewarding. The students were enthusiastic and engaged, with a fascinatingly diverse range of perspectives to share. My role significantly boosted my photography and verbal and written communication skills, as well as my confidence and I am really looking forward to returning for my second summer.
