Ladders: Fancy a career in the creative and digital industries?


Ladders is aimed at helping 18-24 year olds, get a foot in the door. You would work with an industry mentor to develop your skills in either film, music or software development. You’ll learn valuable employability skills, develop your CV, visit local companies, and build that all-important network.

Remember, this isn’t a test. You won’t be marked and you won’t be graded. It’s about developing your skills and learning what you need, when you need it.

You and nine others will spend 12 weeks on your part time creative course. For the first six weeks, you’ll be developing your practical and technical skills in your chosen subject.

In the final six weeks, you’ll be developing a project of your choice, this won’t be marked and it doesn’t need to be finished. Throughout the 12 weeks, will be a series of employability workshops, aimed at developing your CV, communication skills, interview technique and collaborative working ability, among other skills integral to employment.

At the end of the programme, you’ll present your project in a final showcase.
