Our fantastic Creative department is kitted with industry standard facilities along with expert lecturers, who provide all the skills students need to work within the Creative industry. If you manage a business within the sector, we want to hear from you.
The Mayor’s Academies Programme aims to support Londoners hardest hit by the pandemic into good work in sectors key to London’s recovery and long-term economic growth, as part of the London Recovery Programme. It will do this by providing financial support for the coordination and quality marking of training in London (including adult education) and the provision of bespoke support to help newly skilled people into work in our priority sectors.
We provide free training opportunities and support packages to help Londoners get a job in the Creative and Digital sector. We do this by providing bespoke flexible learning programmes to fit around individual circumstances and availability. Our aim is to give them the confidence and skills they need to be employable within 3 to 5 weeks, and a guaranteed job interview with an employer who is accredited with the Good Work Standard.
The Creative Hub provides skills training and education to help people into a wide range of jobs in the film, TV, animation, visual effects and games sectors, from supervisors, production carpenters and costumiers, to 3D animators, game developers, technicians and production managers, as well as legal, support and administrative roles. Our Skills Academy works with employers to design education programmes that will give the industry the skilled people they need to help their businesses to grow and to safeguard the future of the sector.
Our Mayors Skills Academies are all credited by The Quality Mark which identifies our academies to be excellent, industry-relevant training in the capital. The Quality Mark Statement also represents our commitment to including a combination of sector specific questions, and wider cross cutting issues like diversity and inclusion, sustainability, Good Work and the engagement of under-represented groups.
We have partnered with Film London (and supported by Middlesex University and London Higher) as part of the Mayor’s Academies Programme. We also work with a variety of employers to provide training and work experience opportunities.
About the Equal Access Network (EAN)
Our Equal Access Network (EAN) partners with Film London and is supported by the Mayor of London. Through it, we work to ensure the capital’s screen industries represent the diversity of the city itself. Our core aim is to promote equality, inclusion and diversity: We want the EAN to be the link in an industry network for those that don’t have it.
We see first-hand the industry’s enthusiasm and high demand for a diverse and inclusive workforce. We provide the link between untapped under-represented and diverse talent and the companies or productions looking to recruit. To reach this talent, we work closely with training providers, charities and foundations across London.
The EAN aims to remove all barriers to entry and is free to join and open to all. If you are a new entrant, returner, mid-level professional in the film and TV industry or looking to make a career change then join the EAN today.
More than 20 employers within the screen industries sector have already pledged their support to work with us.
