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.

Emerging Technologies benefiting socially excluded groups

The purpose of this pilot is to encourage participants to explore the uses of emerging technologies to benefit the lives of socially excluded groups (learning disability, autism, older people etc).

Creative Digital Careers - LMI Infographics

Bringing young people from schools in Newham and Waltham Forest together with creative employers, this project develops labour market information (LMI) knowledge, skills and insights. Young people work on a live brief to research and design an infographic to inform and advise other local young people, parents, careers advisors and teachers about emerging career opportunities in the creative industries.

Online Security

Cyber Security is a huge growth sector, with not enough skilled candidates to fill the job market. Our aim is to introduce students to cyber security and give them the skills, knowledge, platforms and networks they need to enter the sector.
