About Project

Want to be part of the next generation of social media leaders?

Digital Natives is an exciting opportunity with Creative Media Network to take your social media skills to the next level, with training supported by industry professionals and mentoring from a range of guest visitors.

This summer, we are looking for a dynamic group of young people who are passionate about the pro-social power of social media to join us for our free leadership course, culminating in an OCN qualification.

In the 12-part programme, young leaders will gain skills in managing social media platforms and develop ideas for their own apps and initiatives that tackle issues that matter most to young people growing up in London today.

This project is open to 16 to 25 year olds, with priority given to those living or studying in Westminster.

WEEK 1: 27-30 July
Focusing on digital awareness & social media management skills across different platforms and looking at the issues affecting young people today.

WEEK 2: 3-6 August
Meeting the Industry: inspirational insight sessions into careers and mentoring from professionals in creative industries (including Island Records, M&C Saatchi).

WEEK 3: 10-13 August
Devising a positive social media campaign to present to a final panel of mentors and invited guests, plus closing celebrations.

All participants will receive an OCN Level 1 qualification in Project Management.

Payment to cover expenses will be provided for each session. Please note, places are limited. Email with any questions or for more information.
