SharpFutures Creative Digital Incubator

SharpFutures will be running a 4 week placement for 20 Manchester Metropolitan University students, to teach them new skills in the creative, digital and tech sector. At the end of this placement, the students will be skilled up in the areas of: Production (Pre, during and Post) Graphic Design, Social Media Marketing and Web Development.
The dates will run from Monday 13th June to Friday 8th July with the weeks varying from intense masterclasses with industry professionals, to weeks working independently on an online platform. You will be tasked to create an Online Portfolio, including a Video CV and a personal logo. This is something you will be able to use in the future also. The workshops throughout the placement will help them put together this portfolio which you will have to submit on the last day. As well as the technical workshops, ‘Life skills sessions’  will be run in areas like CV building, getting a job in creative digital, imposter syndrome and confidence building, to help students on to their next step and make yourself future ready. The students will have access to an Online Learning Platform throughout the placement, which has courses covering photography, graphic design, business and marketing and video production. The dates will run from Monday 13th June to Friday 8th July with the weeks varying from intense masterclasses with industry professionals, to weeks working independently on an online platform. You will also be invited along to a POD Open Day (date TBC), where they will have the opportunity to interview to become a SharpFutures POD Member. This placement will be a hybrid placement, meaning part of it will take place in The Sharp Project and part of it will take place on Zoom.
