Create Jobs is A New Direction's employability programme for young Londoners. Our vision is for a dynamic and diverse creative workforce. Through the Create Jobs programme, we are transforming London’s workforce by supporting individuals who are under-represented in the creative, cultural and digital industries.
To do this we deliver:
- Training - we co-design industry-based training with top employers
- Opportunities - we help young creatives into paid employment
- Connections - we connect talented, creative young people to mentors and peers.
Our values are embedded in how we work with young people, partners, funders and as a team.
Equity: We believe all children and young people, regardless of wealth, geography or luck should have the opportunity to take part in culture and develop their creativity. We will always work to support those individuals and communities who are experiencing barriers and challenges.
Culture and creativity: We believe that culture and creativity are crucial to personal and collective fulfilment, as well as critical for our economy. We place shared heritage, stories, imagination at the centre of everything we do
Trust: Trust is an essential part of how we realise our work and it is our belief that young people would be better served if the creative, cultural, education, and business sectors trusted young people more and worked together for their best interests.
