The Future Now Programmes

Connecting young creatives of today with the jobs of tomorrow

Jobs in the future will look different, but digital and creative skills are set to be in growing demand. But, without the right training and experience, young people aren't going to have the skills employers are looking for.

Our free, six-week training programmes are here to address this disconnect as part of the Mayor’s Digital Talent Programme and Stride.

Across creative content, software development, and the world of startups, these courses will give you an understanding of the careers available, the mindsets and skills to start that career, and the connections to employers to make it happen. You'll also take part in workshops and inspirational talks from industry leaders and get wrap-around career support.
