WORKING TOGETHER, WE CAN GIVE OUR YOUNG PEOPLE A BETTER FUTURE
21K Digital Media has teamed up with award-winner Just IT Training & Apprenticeship Provider to help tackle the disproportionately high youth unemployment in Enfield. To achieve this, we offer unemployed young people a six-week digital marketing bootcamp, consisting of creating a monthly youth magazine to discuss topics that are relevant to them and sharing their experiences to inspire other young people to have a better future. They will then spend an additional three weeks learning how to market the magazine that they created to reach their target readers.
Enfield has a high unemployment rate, with over 6,000 16 to 24-year-olds on Universal Credit. Enfield is heading in the same direction as Edmonton, where 40% of black males living in Edmonton were unemployed in 2014, contributing to the city having the second-highest rate of serious youth violence in London.
21K Digital Media already supports young people from diverse backgrounds, especially those who are under-represented in the tech and media industry, to gain the digital and employability skills they need to successfully compete for a tech apprenticeship.
We’re based in Edmonton Green Shopping Centre and work in collaboration with management, apprenticeship training providers, Enfield Council, and employers to improve access to traineeships and apprenticeships for disadvantaged unemployed young people living in Enfield and the surrounding areas.
Could you sponsor a 21K Digital Media Trainee?
The founders of 21K Digital Media have an excellent track record helping traditionally ‘hard-to-reach’ young people who are not in education or training to rekindle into learning at their own pace with a mentor to assist them to overcome any barriers that prevent them from dropping out of their learning environment.
Our 21K Digital Media Employable Bootcamps are deliver by highly qualified freelance trainers working in the industry to provide our beneficiaries with the skills that the industry needs. After beneficiaries completed the three-week Digital Marketing Bootcamp they will spend six weeks working on live projects to show potential apprenticeship employers their creative portfolios.

Helping ex-offenders to prepare for work
We empower young people to be successful through carefully curated creative and digital courses designed to increase employability and promote entrepreneurship.
We may not all be naturally creative, but many of us are not allowed the opportunity to explore our innate creativity. This is especially true for young people who may have not reached their full academic potential, or who have fallen short of the grade needed for traditional training.
The next generation of creative minds
WE KNOW HOW TO DEVELOP CREATIVE TALENT
We understand that developing creative ability alone is not enough. We teach young people how to appeal to recruiters, giving them with support and advice they need to become more employable or start their own business. All of this is achieved through our employability skills programme.
