By Tom Deveson, 2006
The IPC Media Schools Design Programme, a graphic design work-related learning programme, was initiated in 2005 with Creative Partnerships London South.
This essay details the outcomes for a Secondary school in Southwark which, through its partnership with the large-scale media company, gained greater community links and embedded training, work experience and career insight for young people into the curriculum.
This programme has continued yearly from 2005 onwards, with new schools taking part and this essay provides a glimpse into the pilot phase and changes made in phase two of the project.
The partnership with IPC promotes creativity, educational achievement and young people's enjoyment of learning, whilst developing skills directly linked to employability.
