Young people from Southwark aged 16 to 21 are being offered the opportunity to learn new skills this summer as part of Better Bankside's annual Events Academy initiative.
The Events Academy is a work experience programme that gives an insight into a variety of careers including marketing, PR, engineering, construction, IT, architecture, law, hospitality and publishing through work shadowing, business workshops and networking opportunities.
In just four weeks participants will learn a range of skills that will boost their chances of employment, build confidence in the workplace, and look great on a CV.
At the end of the programme participants will host a professional business event using the skills they have developed in project management, marketing, public speaking and much more.
In return for being committed to the project, turning up and working hard, participants will also receive a qualification in Advanced Project Management plus a bursary of up to £300 to help with expenses.
To be eligible to apply, prospective participants must be aged 16-21 and live, study or attend a youth group in Southwark.
