AMT Youth Programme
Supporting young people aged 16-18 to gain experience, opportunities, and resources in the creative industries.
The programme aims to illustrate the breadth of opportunity across the creative industries. It aims to give you confidence and understanding, introducing you to a network of creatives that can help drive your talent and passion.

What the Programme includes
The AMTYP matches you with our partners
in the creative industry, where you will spend time shadowing and experiencing creativity in the workplace. Every applicant will receive a minimum of 1 week of work experience, tailored to their interests.
Each applicant will receive a grant of up to £500 in the form of creative training, equipment, or resources. This will allow you to self-drive your creative interests further. It could include things like; a BoF annual subscription to access industry current affairs and online educational resources; a certified Central Saint Martin’s 2-week course in a creative area of your choice; a 12-week life drawing evening class; some CAD training; a DSLR camera, some creative software, a laptop... The choice of use is up to you and the team are on-hand to support you in finding the relevant and best use of your grant.
From September 2021, we will be introducing an on-going calendar of events for the AMTYP alumni to access and experience. This will include career talks, meet-and-greets, studio tours, workshops and live projects with our partners and their extensive networks. They will be free and unlimited to attend.
The focus of AMTYP is to support you
- to access and gain understanding of the range of creative roles in the industry.
- to gather tangible experience for your CV.
- to meet some amazing people and start building your own creative networks.
We accept applicants all year round and Work Experience can be fulfilled at a time that works for each individual.
