Flipside brings together four digital agencies (Beyond, Made by Many, Sennep, ustwo) to co-create an immersive product design training programme.
Flipside is a 12 week, agency-led digital product design training programme, aimed at helping young East Londoners break into the digital industry and start creating digital products.
We believe that to be successful at a digital agency, these young people should have the mindsets, skills and behaviours that allow them to see opportunities where others might see problems, and to be able to create the world they want to be a part of and spark positive change.
London’s leading creative digital agencies have come together to co-create a world-class Product Design immersive learning programme that will enable businesses to access a wider pool of talent and enable young east Londoners to be better prepared for jobs in fast moving modern businesses.
- 3 months of exclusive hands-on training led by some of the best digital agencies in the world
- Live group projects to build their portfolios
- A rotating programme with multiple agencies to learn and network with
- A guaranteed interview for a number of paid placements for those who complete
- An industry mentor to support you in achieving your goals
- A training bursary of £200 per week to cover travel, food expenses and a bit extra for the duration of training (up to £2500 for the duration)
Flipside trainees work with 4 different digital agencies who will develop the way participants learn, approach problems and find solutions so that they can be the flexible, adaptable and creative trainees that the industry needs.
“A life-changing experience”
Of our first twelve trainees selected to be Flipsiders, ten have gone on to full-time employment in the industry. “This has been a life changing experience for me. Flipside has given me life-long skills and different ways of looking at the world of design,” says Flipside trainee Abeke Popoola. “My eyes have been open to the design industry and I’m more aware of myself. I learned so much and I’m grateful.”
Oliver Benjamin, Director for Skills and Employment at A New Direction adds, “We want to launch digital careers by preparing participants with the mindsets and skills needed to excel at creative problem solving.”
Regardless of where their interests are, with a flexible and current/relevant approach to training, participants have the opportunity to learn from the best in the industry, get their hands dirty making real products for real people and establish the groundwork they'll need for a bright future.
