How do you fancy a funded work placement/ internship in Seville, Spain? You’d be working with a creative company in the area of media, web or design. And you’d be in SPAIN for 13 weeks, learning, soaking up the culture, getting experience, with your accommodation paid. Sounds like a great gig to me!!
PROJECT MURILLO: INSPIRING CREATIVE COMMUNICATIONS IN ANDALUSIA
Spend 13 weeks in Seville, Spain, to undertake a funded work placement with a local company in Seville specialising in media, web, or creative design. And receive in-depth training and skill development in media design and video production while working on a global education project, which seeks to provide open access video-based education for students in the developing world.
This internship is funded through the EU Leonardo Programme, and applicants must be EU citizens from any participating country except for Spain. Housing and stipend will be provided, as well as language training and cultural activities.
Creative industry work placement:
Applicants will undertake a work placement at a company in the creative sector. At your work placement you will work on a “Creative Project” with mentorship from a creative professional within the company. You will gain work experience and insight for your own development, as well as marketable skills in media, design and communications.
Design and video production for a global education project:
You will also receive training and professional development experience as a Digital Media Designer (DMD) with Fusion Universal Ltd. You will produce digital media content and videos for the Virtual School project, which aims to provide free video-based education for children in the developing world. For each video, you will take an audio explanation of a core concept (in English, Maths, Biology, Physics, Chemistry or ICT) and animate it, using Fusion’s digital design techniques.
You will gain the ability to ‘visualise’ concepts and ideas, making them easier to understand, and develop skills in visual design and video editing… all while contributing to an education project that will help millions worldwide.
