16 to 21-year-olds invited to join Better Bankside Events Academy
The 2017 Events Academy participants

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.

• Programme dates: 30 July – 24 August 2018 (Mondays-Thursdays)
