SUPPORTING YOUNG PEOPLE INTO MEDIA INDUSTRY

The Need

The programme aims to target young people who are from the disadvantaged groups, particularly the BAME community.

Our programme will directly target youth living in social deprivation who do not have the income or knowhow to take on further education.

By undertaking this programme young people will be better equipped and have confidence to pursue careers in a fiercely competitive market, which doesn’t favour people from a BAME and social deprived background.

Opportunities available for young people between the ages of 19 to 24 years old.

Duration: November 2020 to December 2021

We know that the pandemic is having a big impact on young people’s lives and those that support them.

Our Supporting Young People into Media Industry project over the 14 months, is delivering new ways of engagement with disadvantaged young people, particular with digital engagement.

We want to make a positive difference to young people’s lives by:

  • giving young people an opportunity to gain real insight and practical skills into media and charitable sector.
  • encouraging young people from BAME community to pursue a career in media industry by being mentored by role models with similar backgrounds to them.
  • gaining confidence from their training to take into jobs, a skill which may not be afforded to them naturally. Their CV’s will be richer, and the experience gained will help to apply for jobs beyond the specific training.
