Update (25/05/2021): We now have a limited number of additional places available on our ETA Project Media Employability Programme. This covers any applicant aged between 16 to 24 years old, who lives in Kent, Medway or Essex and is currently unemployed and not in full time education. The programme will be delivered online only and is designed to support, train and mentor you into work or further education in the creative industries (Film/TV/Games/VR/XR). If you are interested then please complete the referral form at the bottom of this page and we will get back to you.
Please Note (21/12/2020): We are no longer taking applicants for our ETA Project after 2020. Due to the U.K. leaving Europe our ESF/ESFA Funding is coming to a close in March 2021. We will continue to support current participants for our programme into early 2021. If we are offered replacement funding we will let you know.
Interested in film-making, game design, or XR, but don’t know what’s involved? Want to learn how to take your first steps into the creative industries, whether it be work or a creative College or Uni Course? Just got your School/College/Uni Exam results but don’t know what to do next? Good news, the Employment Through Arts (ETA) project is taking applications from unemployed Young Adults across Kent and Medway.

Thanks to European Social Funding in partnership with Skills Training UK, Physical Folk is continuing to deliver the ETA Project until 2021.
The project will continue to support and mentor 16 to 24 year olds living in Kent or Medway who are not in full-time education, training or employment who want to explore work or training opportunities in the creative industries. Through working together on drama and film projects we develop the skills, understanding and confidence needed to help secure future work or further education.
Participants will also get the opportunity to explore a range of post production techniques by getting a free taster of Blackmagic Design’s official Introduction to Davinci Resolve certification course.
Feedback from some of the participants from our Swale ETA Project which was supported by Creative Skillset’s Film Skills Fund and Porchlight’s Live Well Kent Innovation Grant, can be seen here.
