Andi Peters mentors South London students
In Spring 2020 the ITV Breakfast team pledged to work with communities around the UK to empower young people to create successful career paths within TV production.
We specifically aimed to recruit a group of South London students to give them real life work experience.
We wanted to set a brief that was for actual TV broadcast - no dress rehearsals here!
We also lined up presenter Andi Peters to meet the students and share his experiences of the industry. Andi also agreed to let them direct him and share their vision.
ITV teamed up with a Brixton-based community group called We Rise.
We Rise had a shared vision and vast experience in bringing young people and businesses together. With this in mind We Rise set out to find 8 black students across London, who would be keen to work with ITV and gain valuable insight into our business.
It was a joy to watch these dynamic young adults embrace the task in hand and create broadcast-worthy content for ITV.
