Creativity Works: Multimedia Training

Helping young Londoners break into the media and creative industry

Applications are currently closed.

Creativity Works: Multimedia Training, supported by Mayor’s Fund for LondonBerkeley Foundation and Citi Foundation, is a free, intensive 10-week crash-course of high-impact media masterclasses and employment skills training for media-focused young Londoners who are not in employment, education or training.

Practical Training

The scheme is delivered in two phases; the first six-weeks includes practical media masterclasses, facilitated by top-class media professionals, and visits to big-brand media companies such as: Google, Jamie Oliver Productions, Facebook, ITN and Sky.

Each week follows a different media-theme, such as: photography, digital media, advertising, journalism, TV and radio. During which, participants learn the nuts and bolts of each area and get the chance to apply their new skills.

The content created is uploaded onto a dedicated Creativity Works Tumblr page, which is then shared far and wide on social media. Find out how our Season 10 cohort got on.

I am applying for real contractual jobs and finally feeling able to mobilise myself confidently within the working world. If I had not embarked on this course my life would have been extremely different.

Mentoring

In the latter stages of the programme we focus on employability skills. Each young person is paired with a media mentor who provides 1-2-1 career mentoring and coaching. At this stage in the programme they also take part in workshops covering: CV development, cover letter writing, and job interview techniques. In doing so, they will develop a unique understanding of the job application process. 

See what our Season 10 participants got up to during the first half of the programme which took place under lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Graduation

At the end of the programme, we celebrate the young people’s achievements with a graduation ceremony. At this point they are job-ready and well on their way to finding paid work in the media industry.
