London South Bank University: helping diverse graduates access work

Posted on December 9, 2021


Creative Access has partnered with the School of Arts and Creative Industries at LSBU since 2018 to improve access to work for students and graduates from under-represented communities.

Partnership impact

Creative Access has supported over 15 students from LSBU to secure paid roles at leading employers across the creative industries. We have also provided crucial employability support to many more students who benefit from Widening Participation support.


Creative Access has provided a targeted programme of support for students which includes interview practice clinics, creative showcases on campus and student training days, to equip them for apply to roles upon graduation. We also deliver an annual 1:1 mentoring programme, matching students with professionals in the industry in which they aspire to work.
