Helping to inform and inspire young people

Welcome to Creative Digital Careers!

Creative Digital Careers is an exciting project, funded through the European Social Fund. Led by New City College, it is one of 12 such projects commissioned by the Greater London Authority.  Working with five schools in East London, we are supporting young people to have a greater understanding - and better access to, the numerous and varied creative and digital roles on their doorstep.

Project Focus

Check out our exciting projects that employers and students are taking part in.
