Work Skills


As an extension of our current core services CYL delivers a Work, Skills and Training Project that will allow young people aged 14+ to participate in a work experience programme for 10 days in a commercial production company alongside a number of established media companies.

With more young people heading into employment, work place skills and experience needs to be taught at an earlier age in order to allow young people to make an informed career/ educational choice and plan the steps needed to actively enter their chosen industry.

CYL work experience / training packages give groups of up to 8 students a 10 day course working alongside a professional production company, PR company and record label. Preparing young people for training, apprenticeships, work or self employment. CYL work skills and training packages are delivered by professionals with grass roots knowledge and experience in each field.

With three available pathways (held in 10 session blocks) set to allow young media creatives the opportunity to choose a path that best suits them over a total of 30 weeks.

Each 10 day course can be held one day per week over 10 weeks/ 1 term or 5 days per week (Mon – Fri) over two consecutive weeks.
