Northern Lights has been a large part of what Moira and I have developed over the last few years to help develop talent for the creative and digital industries. With the demise of Vision+Media, and the lack of skills remit at its successor Creative England, we were thinking that the knowledge, expertise and format would be lost forever. But thankfully it hasn’t. A new initiative the green field has been developing with Econsultancy and Inspiring Interns – perhaps dubbed “southern lights” for us northerners – is to pilot this June in London.
Picking from the core content of Northern Lights, the week-long programme will set out to prepare new graduates with the digital and soft skills to perform to their full potential when interning, and hopefully provide employers with real added-value candidates, for full time roles.
Interested? Don’t hang about. The places on the programme are limited as are the number of companies we are inviting to take on the trained interns.
