Admin, Lambeth, London, United Kingdom

We are welcoming our new young Lambeth creatives to kickstart their journey in film and TV.

We are very excited to have engaged with this cohort of eager students for our 6th Film2Learn2£arn programme!

Filming at The Workshop

Our students are having a unique experience filming and starting the course at The Workshop. We have had many of our past films shot in this unique space, and especially in the fire station, with thanks to the kind and continuous support from U + I Plc.

“Learning through practice”

In our first four Thursday and Friday sessions our students were briefed and introduced to the course. The students were encouraged to learn how to use industry-level equipment through hands-on experience. Our professional tutors and peer mentors were always by their side to answer any questions as well as to ensure a safe learning environment.

7th November 2019

They have just finished filming their Entry interviews and are getting to grips with team-working, technical skills, camera, lighting and audio.

About Film2Learn2£arn

Funded by the Walcot Foundation, the course provides free inclusive filmmaking skills and employment training, with paid work experience.

We started our first Film2Learn2£arn course in 2013, in response to requests from young people in our locality.

We aim to increase our young people’s general wellbeing, education, skills and employment through the arts.

Since when, we have delivered industry approved and funded film skills and employment training courses to over 100 young adults, 85% of whom have moved into paid entry level work in the industry, 5% entered higher education, 5% are in full-time other jobs or training.

We are here for Lambeth’s next generation.
