Upgrade Your Future Path

Designed for current LCC students and recent graduates, ‘Upgrade Your Future Path’ offers a range of opportunities to connect with the creative industries, receive invaluable advice, and scope out your future career.

What do we offer?

The programme provides support through 3 key activities:

Industry Mentoring Programme (online/in-person)

You’ll be paired with your own industry mentor working across the design, media or screen industries. You'll receive mentoring training, attend a launch event and then, meet up regularly with your mentor over the course of 5 months to explore your career objectives and goals. Mentoring can take place in-person, or online (for those outside of London). The programme runs from January to May.

Rapid Review Sessions (online)

In these 25-minute online sessions, an industry advisor will review content such as your CV, website or reel, and discuss career and industry focused questions. These sessions take place in March and April.

Speed Networking (in-person)

Discuss career-focused topics with industry professionals through a speed dating-style networking session, where you’ll be able to access advice while practising your networking skills.

My mentor has been absolutely fantastic! From allowing me to shadow him at work and through meetings, to offering me summer employment – I have gained invaluable professional advice and experience that I never would have imagined beforehand.
