In July 2019, Digital Futures, our pioneering digital employability course, will return! The course will run from the 29th July - 2nd August from 10:00-16:30 Monday to Friday, at St. Andrew's, Short Street, SE1 8LJ.

Digital Futures is for unemployed young people from across South London, giving them the opportunity to learn Web Design and employability skills with the wonderful team at St John's Church and our External Facilitators. Our students will learn HTML Coding which will allow them to design and code their own websites in the future.

At the heart of The Bridge at Waterloo is the desire to see people achieve their dreams. Design sessions will be supplemented with training in employment skills, including CV writing, interview techniques, conflict resolution, effective communication and more!

Where possible, students will be provided with two weeks of work experience at a local employer.


After completing the "Digital Futures" course each participant will have the opportunity to take part in our follow on segment: "The Bridge To Employment". This course will give participants a fantastic insight in the importance of "Soft Skills" that are needed to become "Work Ready". At the end of this course; participants have reported a major increase in their self assessed ability to find and secure employment.
