Creativity Works: Multimedia Training

Helping young Londoners break into the media and creative industry

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

Are you aged 18 – 24, currently based in London, went to secondary school in London, currently not in education, employment or training and wanting to break into the media and creative industry?

Our Creativity Works programme will run from Tuesday 19 April to Friday 27 May 2022.

Applications are now closed.

In 2021 we celebrated ten seasons of Creativity Works!

Practical Training

The six-week programme will focus on training in the media, creative and employability skills that are found across the media and creative sector.

The media and creative masterclasses cover a wide range of topics such as data and insights, gaming, storytelling and social media to name a few. The sessions will be facilitated by some of Media Trust’s industry partners which could include, BBC, Google, Hearst, Snap, TikTok and Twitch.

You’ll learn the nuts and bolts of each area and get the chance to apply your newly acquired skills through creating your own content, pitching your creative ideas and receiving feedback from our industry partners.

Throughout the programme, you’ll also benefit from employability and soft skills training, including CV development, writing cover letters, and interview techniques, as well as money management, confidence building and problem–solving.

Creativity Works helped me develop from a person who saw no way onto the career ladder, to someone who now has the world at their feet.
