BBC London presenters Henry Bonsu and Darshna Soni will be special guests at a ceremony celebrating the achievements of students who have completed an innovative media course.
The Creative Connections programme, developed by BBC London, The Bernie Grant Centre and The College of North East London, aims to address an under-representation of minority ethnic people in mainstream media.
This is the second year the course has run and it has really made an impact on giving media hopefuls the exposure they need to gain a foothold in the industry.
Around nine of its graduates have landed paid employment with providers such as the BBC as a direct result of the courses success.
The eight week course offers hands-on training in camera work, research skills, non-linear editing, TV and radio broadcasting and runs for 15 hours over approximately three days a week.
This year and last years graduates, (including those who are now employed in media jobs), will be available for photos and interviews at the ceremony, which is taking place on Wednesday, June 25 from 6.45pm to 9pm, at Tottenham Town Hall, Town Hall Approach Road, London N15.
Reporters and photographers are very welcome to join us for drinks and a buffet, short films, sound presentations, and a chat.
