Brixton Finishing School

Young people aiming to get into the creative industries are being given the opportunity to attend a 'finishing school' in South London.

The free masterclasses are aimed at those who are under-represented in media and advertising -  with the hope to change it from within.

It is part of the Mayor's Free Digital Skills For Young Londoners inititave, and the 12 week pilot course launched in Brixton.

The School has done London wide outreach and selected 20 young talents who could be the next generation of media, digital and advertising stars. 

Aged 18 – 25 that perhaps can't afford to splash out tens of thousands on uni fees they are from backgrounds which are under represented and can get actual jobs with top firms on graduation.
