Paid STEP Placements

12-month paid traineeships matching young East Londoners with creative local businesses

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, you’ll get paid a London Living Wage or above salary over a 12-month training programme to develop a range of skills and creative approaches. Get your 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 your portfolio with a collaborative creative project.

We’ll also connect you with a specialist industry mentor, provide careers coaching and continue to offer support as part of our creative community after the programme.

This year we are offering up to 30 placements in sectors including – museums and galleries, theatre and performance, fashion and design, film, TV, radio and broadcasting.
