3aaa apprentice's memory lives on

On Friday 6th July 2018, 3aaa Apprenticeships officially opened the ‘Seth Woolley Studio’, in memory of its talented Digital Marketing Apprentice, Seth Woolley.

Seth, who tragically passed away in December 2017, was a much-loved member of the 3aaa Marketing team and well known and respected around the company’s Head Office and 36 academies across the country. His infectious personality and passion for Marketing were just a couple of traits that meant he left a lasting memory for his colleagues and a powerful impact on the company itself, with his ideas and work rate being strongly implemented within 3aaa’s Marketing department.

The ‘Seth Woolley Studio’ was created and introduced to give 3aaa’s learners and the wider business access to a state of the art facility, where they can benefit from an interactive and creative blended learning platform. Boasting a range of exciting technical features, including a fully interactive 75-inch screen and a feature that allows learners to feedback ‘live’ during digital workshops, the ‘Seth Woolley studio’ is a key communication tool that helps 3aaa stay ahead of the curve. Communication and creativity were two of Seth’s most powerful traits and it is fitting that these two characteristics are engrained within the studio.

Seth’s family visited the 3aaa Head Office in Derby to cut the ribbon and officially open the ‘Seth Woolley studio’. 
Seth’s Mum, Liz commented on his time at 3aaa “3aaa suited Seth down to the ground; the marketing team is a young, fun team and he was given a wide scope to use his creativity. 
“Seth only worked for 3aaa for approximately 8 months, yet became part of the 3aaa family and that caring has since been extended to us, his family. They have been more than generous with their time. For instance, the team designed and printed the order of service for the funeral."

3aaa Apprenticeship’s Co-Founder and Director, Di McEvoy-Robinson, said “We are delighted to welcome Seth’s family to open the Seth Woolley Studio. Seth loved to be at the centre of the action and bringing people together was a particular skill of his.  The studio does exactly that, it brings staff and learners together from across the country. We wanted to make sure Seth remained at the heart of what we do in the marketing department and as we use the studio every day he remains an integral part of moving us forward.”

Seth’s family have now started raising money for CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) and have set up the Seth Woolley memorial fund. 12 young people die every week with undiagnosed heart conditions, and Seth's Mum, Dad and his younger brother, Zac, recently did the 3 Bridges Walk in London to raise awareness along with more than 1,500 grieving family members.  Eventually they hope to fund a screening in Derby.
