The next course dates are Monday 11th March to Friday 17th May 2019. They are recruiting a diverse range of media-focused young Londoners to take part.

About the scheme:

Creativity Works: Multimedia Genius Training, supported by Mayor’s Fund for London, Berkeley Foundation and Citi Foundation is a free, intensive 10-week crash-course of high-impact media masterclasses and employment skills training, led by top-class media professionals from companies such as: BBC, ITV, Sky, Discovery TV, Snapchat, Facebook, Yahoo! News and more.

The scheme is delivered in two phases: 6 x weeks of practical masterclasses and visits to media companies, followed by 4 x weeks of 1-2-1 career mentoring and employability skills training, covering CVs, interview techniques and applying for entry-level positions in the creative sectors. After completing the course, the young people will celebrate their achievements with a special graduation event held at one of our media partners.

Around 80% of alumni are now in paid jobs.

Applicants must be:

  • Aged 18-24
  • Living in London
  • Went to secondary school in London

  • We are particularly keen to receive applications from young people who have fewer than 5 GCSE grades A-C, and those who have been out of work for 6-months or more

Media Trust will cover the young people’s travel expenses and provide lunch for each full day training.
