Who We Are

Developing Young People. Creating Opportunities

We specialise in working with young people aged between 13 and 21 with the aim of helping them improve their chances of gaining access to further opportunities in employment, education or training.

We achieve this by using innovative teaching methods in Film, Video, Radio and TV production. These methods provide young people with tangible opportunities to learn transferable multimedia and production skills designed to improve their employability, self-esteem, social communication and raise their aspirations.
