The event, coordinated by FSB’s marketing department, focused on highly skilled Apple staff training students on poster, podcast and music composition creation for business and promotional videos. Students went on to ask a series of thought-intensive questions about enhancing their own anti-knife crime projects and business ideas for development.

Fatuma Hussein, FSB’s Student Union President, speaking at the event, said ‘I am extremely thankful to the Apple Creative Pro staff as they ignited a creativity within me that I never knew I had. It was brilliant of Apple to host a special event for FSB students and to offer each one of us an irreplaceable Apple certificate. We can use what we have learned for both our academic work and careers.’

Mr Mohammed Zaidi, FSB’s Deputy CEO, added: ‘Every student I’ve met at FSB is full of creativity. So, nurturing this is one of the most important things an educator can do. We feel that digital creativity makes our students better communicators and problem solvers. It prepares them to thrive in today’s business world — and that belonging to the future. In light of this, we look forward to working with Apple again.’

Michaela Bates, FSB’s Student Support Coordinator, speaking at the event, said: ‘Today’s Apple-led event has really ignited student creativity and enhanced their digital creative skills. This is very important as students who are given more ways to express ideas, have more ways to think. This allows them to see things differently and make connections that they perhaps would not have initially.’
