Drawing and digital design during an educational course



Open Lens Media is a Training, Development, and Engagement organisation providing employment services, educational courses, school holiday programmes, community engagement services, and training and consultancy to young people and youth focused agencies/authorities working with those stemming from disenfranchised, underrepresented, and under-served backgrounds.

Working closely with children, young people, and young adults between the ages of 11-15, 16-24, and 25-35, we deliver programmes that support them in successfully transitioning into further education, employment, training, or developing their entrepreneurial talents.

Sophie, 24
Makeup Artist & Aspiring Director

Podcasting and editing were the most enjoyable activities I have done on the course. I’ve gained communication skills, team-building and directing skills. The Pathway Programme has helped me to feel like me again.

Kacper, 19 
Graphic Designer & Bike Enthusiast

I've gained a lot of confidence and a lot of faith in myself. Everyone has been so supportive and the people that I've worked with are great people. We've built a huge bond.

The facilitators are really good and you never feel like you're lost or out of your depth because everything is explained simply. I'd like to say thank you to Open Lens for giving me this opportunity and thanks to the facilitator for helping me through this process.
