Inspiring the young in our community is a joy. The mix of projects means we can guide and advise children on things like their homework, right up to their career prospects.
We’ve been lucky enough to have the independent charity Inspire! help us create ties with local schools and charities for this work. Staff regularly attend careers ready events to talk to students about their employment history and give worldly advice on how to break into industries.
Over the years we have invited classes of year 4 students from local schools to Clearcast as part of their ‘Work Week’ programme. They get the chance to feel out the work environment and what we do at Clearcast.
Our Training Manager Michael has also done interactive sessions at local schools Haverstock and Stormont House.
As part of our commitment to the local community, from 2015 to 2019 we partnered with Haverstock School in Camden. We hosted two interns on 6 week programmes annually as part of their Career Academy Programme.
Our aim is to give young people an introduction to the world of work and insights into how the advertising business works from a TV advertising perspective.
