In 2021, Ant and Dec became Goodwill Ambassadors for The Prince’s Trust, partnering with us to help the next generation develop skills for the media industry and find jobs and training opportunities. Their new and unique programme is called Ant and Dec’s Making it in Media and the first course ran in London in July 2021, giving young people the opportunity to develop their self-confidence and practical skills alongside gaining industry knowledge from media experts.

Commenting on the project, Ant said: “Our Making it in Media course with The Prince’s Trust is a real passion project for us and something we’ve wanted to work on for a long time. There are so many roles in TV and media that young people may have never considered as a career. We want to help young people find out more about the industry.”

Dec added: “Starting out in the world of work can be challenging at the best of times, but right now it is harder than ever for young people. We hope this course offers some inspiration, practical skills and experience that young people can take with them into the workplace. We’re incredibly proud to be partnering with The Prince’s Trust on this and we hope we can help make a difference to some young people’s lives.”
