Admiral Filming Day
Members of the School TV Station have been creating a film about Admiral Insurance Plc at their Swansea Office, based in SA1.
6 Pupils attended the day and created a film which will be shown to all new Admiral staff as part of a new Motivational training initiative taking place within the firm. The day was a huge success and we were very lucky to take part in such a scheme - many thanks to all at Admiral and Media 4.
