Student work experiences in the sector of Web Design and Development


We are pleased to add Pamaya Ltd, one of North Wales’ leading Web and graphical design companies, to our network of companies we work with for the delivery of work experience programmes.
Pamaya Ltd of Penrhyn Bay has been hosting two European students as part of an ongoing programme which provides students with work experience whilst immersing them in the culture, heritage and countryside of North Wales.
Pamaya first learnt about Conlan Schools of Abergele when our Managing Director Francesco Cendron offered a Programming Student Wu Jiang to reside with them for a three week period back in 2008.
More recently, Pamaya have provided placements for Vanessa Gorga from Bari in Southern Italy and also Silvio Boldrin from Milan.
Vanessa’s work has been widely varied and has focused on Pamaya’s Client The Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza; meanwhile Silvio has been flexing his muscles in design concepts and deliverables for some of North Wale’s leading businesses.
Pamaya M.D. Paul Williams said “ Once again, it has been a real pleasure in hosting these young European professionals, it is fantastic to see the standard of work they are able to deliver and in many cases puts our UK students to shame because of their business awareness.
We look forward to a continued relationship with Conlan School in the not too distant future and we wish Vanessa and Silvio good luck with their studies; we are sure that the will make ‘model’ employees.”

A unique collaboration between McCullin and the Imperial War Museum, this major new exhibition contains over 200 photographs, contact sheets, objects, magazines and personal memorabilia, and shows how war has shaped the life of this exceptional British photographer and those across the globe over the last half-century.
