YCTV was set up to provide learning opportunities for young people through a medium to which they relate very easily and which encourages self-expression. Over the years we have worked with young people from schools and colleges, pupil referral units and youth inclusion projects, youth offending teams and young people referred by social services, as well as other young people who ‘drop in’ or hear about us from friends and family. A proven in-house induction programme is backed up with further opportunities to learn more skills and take on projects that stretch young people’s capacity to direct and organise their own work. YCTV staff are supported by occasional master classes and feature interviews with industry professionals (recently including Nick Broomfield, Alan Rickman, Otiz and June Sarpong). A partnership with Ravensbourne College of Design & Technology has enabled us to help over 20 young people on to HND and degree courses there in the last 3 years, with another 12 expected to start courses in 2003. 10 YCTV members have already gained HND qualifications through this programme. A bursary provided by St Luke’s advertising agency provides financial support for one student a year. in 2000, the UK ’s major broadcasters became core partners and provided funds to support the YCTV’s development. The BBC, Carlton TV and Channel 4 all support YCTV and have been active in opening up other opportunities through the industry’s Cultural Diversity Network and Diversity Database. In 2001, a major programme of training and development was funded by the London Development Agency. Called Changing Faces, the programme combined music and video to develop training methods and build capacity. European Social Fund money is now supporting a two-year programme for 13-17 year olds, and a further LDA grant will fund work with 13-25 year olds in a joint programme with Bootstrap Enterprises. This programme is designed to improve young people’s educational achievements and employability, and should lead to 350 young people gaining jobs. With continuing support from trusts, companies and private donations, YCTV has been able to build on its foundations with high quality facilities and training provision which is greatly valued by young people.
