Cost of programme:
MediaCom & Me is a six-session programme delivered by The Talent Foundry in partnership with MediaCom. Designed for sixth formers (Year 12 and 13), the programme gives students the opportunity to learn about what it’s like to be part of the UK’s largest media agency whilst developing key employability skills for the future. In addition, the programme focuses on attracting black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) students due to the group being currently underrepresented in the media industry.
The programme invites students to MediaCom’s head office in Holborn, London where throughout the sessions they work through a range of creative challenges. Focusing on different disciplines, each session includes employees from various areas of the agency who come to give insightful presentations about their area of expertise.
Each workshop will encourage the students to think about their core attributes and competencies and how these can be utilised in the job market. The result will be to build a cohort of confident and capable students, furnished with the knowledge they need to make the transition from education to the job market.
