Our aim is to develop and deliver technology driven and scaled the digital media production capacity and digital video and media communication skills of 16-20s amongst UK vocational industry entrants - especially for economically, socially and democratically marginalised communities that do not have intensive and costly hands on more traditional training models - and to do so in such ways that they are far better able to access, and develop high employability skills at a time of major change and disruption to education and training models of access.
We propose an enormously scalable cloud-based community of collaborative vocational learning and ideas sharing not just for the learners but their trainers looking to develop and use new and innovative ways to access, engage and share best practice and current and relevant industry knowledge and standards using a highly social space of instant messaging, resources and expertise sharing during these rapidly changing times of education delivery and the 2020 Pandemic. We aim to pilot, and then empower active collaboration around learners and trainers common cause of greater opportunity and better outcomes for all - to bring meaningful and measurable change at local, regional and ultimately national level in the vital UK export industry of creative industries.
"The most effective social change for 16-20s takes place, when the most highly trained experts can share unique professional experience with the widest number of young people in the most engaging, dynamic and interactive ways possible to give them the skills to shout, campaign and punch above their weight in a crowded media landscape of competing agendas."

Using our expertise as teachers, educators, film-makers and digital storytellers we aim to develop the campaigning capacity and video and media communication skills of economically, socially and democratically disadvantaged or marginalised communities of 16-20s in the UK in such ways that they are better able to identify, campaign and influence decisions which affect them..
