Promoting VQ Day through Social Media
On the 3 May we will be running a #VQDay Social Media Takeover, by flooding our social media channels with stories and posts about vocational qualifications throughout the day. To generate a VQ frenzy and get people talking about these fantastic qualifications we want you to be involved by filling your social media channels with #VQDay content too. Read more >>>
We have created a VQ frame for you to use on your social media profile image or header – It is call VQ Day Wales and can be found in the “add frame” option when you edit your profile picture on Facebook.
Action Pack and Marketing Materials
To help with the promotion of the day we have put together a VQ Action Pack. This contains helpful information on:
- Event options: ideas of how you can be involved in VQ Day
- Engaging your local AMs and MP
- Generating media coverage: source case studies, press release templates and ministerial/organisation quotes to help with your media campaign, and
- VQ Day promotion
We have also produced a series of marketing materials to help you support the day. These include:
VQ Email Signature
VQ Social Media Card
Finalist Social Media Cards
VQ Belly Poster
Thank you …
Thank you to everyone who continues to help us promote VQ Day and celebrate VQs. It simply wouldn’t be possible without the support of our partners, all the colleges and training providers that get involved and of course, all the learners that take vocational qualifications!
