LOCWS International are excited to announce that Sam Saidely, our new work experience candidate, will begin a 3 week placement with us from Monday January 11th.
This is in partnership with the ACT Training and the BBC Make It Digital programme, which is helping young unemployed people boost their digital skills and get a foot on the jobs ladder. The placement forms part of the nine-week traineeship that includes training from the world-renowned BBC Academy. It teaches participants basic digital skills, such as creating simple websites and short videos for the web; and gets young people ready for work with employability skills and the work placement.
Sam will be designing a digital media campaign for an exciting new LOCWS International project due to launch in the coming months..
BBC Cymru Wales, the Welsh Government, Department of Work and Pensions along with ACT Training, are working in partnership on the project. The scheme is the biggest of its kind in Wales and is a vital part of BBC Cymru Wales’ plans to help open up the creative and digital industries in Wales to a much broader range of people from all backgrounds.
