IPC Media launches school design website

Our work related learning programme delivered in partnership with IPC Media (the leading UK consumer magazine publisher) goes from strength to strength, as we start recruiting students for its 4th year.

10 January 2011

The programme is an innovative and original graphic design and media work-related learning programme, promoting creativity, educational achievement and young people's enjoyment of learning, whilst developing skills directly linked to employability.

Bringing real benefits to IPC Media as a business, and providing meaningful opportunities for young people through local schools, this is a leading example of cross-sector partnership in action.

The IPC Media Schools' Design Programme aims to open up the world of magazine design to young people. Students complete 20 hours of magazine design training and take part in a work simulation. The programme culminates in a one-week placement at IPC, where students work alongside an art editor on one of the company's magazines.
