A 14 week part-time, evening training course that prepares trainees for roles as Digital Creatives or Front End Web Developers.
Participants will access:
Industry led training in front end web development or creative digital, preparing for entry-level jobs, apprenticeships and paid internships
Portfolio development opportunities through practical tasks, live briefs, team working, industry mentoring and work experience where appropriate
Access to employers with 1-1 support into employment.
We believe we are creating a unique training opportunity that blends the technical with the creative creating an outcome of learning within participants enabling them to be ready for entry level employment opportunities – paid placements, paid internships or apprenticeships (also paid and at a London Living Wage).
Who’s it for?
18-24 year old Londoners with an interest in Front End Web Development or Digital Creative roles.
We particularly welcome individuals who are underrepresented in industry including women, people from black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds, people living with disabilities and people from low socio-economic backgrounds.
N.B. This is a selective programme, participants must be driven and show interest in this area as a potential future career.
We have now recruited a cohort of 20 talented, young and diverse Londoners who have been led through an induction from both D&AD and General Assembly and are currently learning the basics of HTML and CSS, before taking part in their first Lab which will bring their skills together to work on a brief.
Later in the course they will attend sessions at D&AD looking at insights, human tech & UX, and presentation skills, before coming together in the final week to work on a final project to add to their portfolio.
