STEP is a twelve-month paid traineeship where young east Londoners are matched with committed local businesses to experience an entry-level role and produce a creative project.
Through STEP, young people get paid a London Living Wage or above salary over a 12-month training programme to develop a range of skills and creative approaches. The programme allows participants to get their foot firmly in the creative industries, grow as part of a like-minded peer network, take part in monthly professional development workshops, and get a budget to boost their portfolio with a collaborative creative project.
Participants are also connected with a specialist industry mentor to provide career coaching and continued support as part of our creative community after the programme.
