A MEDIA training programme to help people into careers in broadcasting and film production has won a share of a £10,000 windfall from a community trust.

The four-month 'electronic media access' course run by the 'Splash' community group on the Isle of Dogs in East London is preparing eight people for potential careers in broadcasting or film production.

The organisation received a grant this week from the Isle of Dogs Community Foundation towards the course, as well as a second nine-month project for 10 people in adult health and social care which also includes work placement.

It successfully ran similar courses last year with six people finding jobs, two in TV and film in Central London and four in care homes.

The new courses begin next month with 'roadshows' on estates nearby to promote the training projects.
