Educational Initiatives

Time Inc. UK is working with A New Direction to deliver an innovative media employment programme for young people from inner London.

 

We want to create networks, give support and offer opportunities to local students to find out more about working in this dynamic sector, and in the process help towards increasing workforce diversity in communications and publishing.

We are doing this by partnering St. Saviour’s and St. Olave’s School in Southwark, running an education and progression programme that includes a series of interventions, including career talks, learning experiences, employability workshops, mentoring and multi-media projects that will give the students a better understanding of the career opportunities in media today and increase their ability to compete in the media job market.

We also accommodate requests for visits wherever possible from school and university students who wish to learn more about our company and the industry, providing the opportunity for them to meet editors, designers and other senior employees to find out about careers in media.
