We’re delighted to be part of a new skills programme in the West of England to support women to find jobs in the digital sector.

The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) has secured £238,000 funding from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) for the new Women into Digital Jobs, Education and Training (WIDJET) programme.  As part of WIDJET, Knowle West Media Centre will be running a range of training programmes in Spring 2019.

Web design course: From Her…Digital

Our creative agency Eight will run a short course in web design and development between May and July 2019: From Her…Digital will be open to women aged 18+ who are new to the digital industry.

The programme follows previous ‘From Her…’ programmes at KWMC which have supported women to increase their skills and confidence in a range of digital media disciplines including music production, filmmaking and photography.

Over 10 weeks, From Her…Digital will provide participants with a solid grounding in tools, techniques and software for web design, development and digital media production.

Digital manufacturing programme: Making It

KWMC: The Factory‘s  Making It programme will provide an introduction to the tools, techniques and careers associated with digital manufacturing. Through practical sessions, participants will learn a range of skills including how to use digital design software and follow a design process, operate machinery including laser cutters and 3D printers, and design for materials such as wood, fabric, acrylic and card.

Making It will run from May to July 2019 and will include training sessions in 2D and 3D design, one-to-one mentoring, and supported sessions where participants can experiment, prototype and test ideas for their own project.  They will also have the chance to present what they’ve made to potential industry employers at a showcase event, and access specialist masterclasses in topics ranging from Wearable Technology to Virtual Reality.

The programme will be open to women aged 16+ and residents of South Bristol.


As well as KWMC’s training opportunities, Bath College, digital training businesses Mayden Academy and Boomsatsuma and the Dot Project will all be involved in delivering activities and training in Spring and Summer 2019.

WIDJET will work with women across the region, providing digital skills and training from entry-level taster sessions through to high-level industry specified courses. Participants can take part in a range of skills courses, training or seminars designed directly with business needs in mind, with the aim of them securing jobs in digital roles.

Minister for Digital, Margot James said: “I am thrilled to announce that the West of England Combined Authority was one of our Digital Skills Innovation Fund winners. Its fantastic work with Bath College, Mayden Academy, Boomsatsuma, Knowle West Media Centre and the Dot Project will change lives.

“Women are underrepresented in tech roles and this funding aims to help develop a more gender diverse workforce because it is not only the right thing to do but also makes business sense.”

West of England Mayor, Tim Bowles, said: “This is fantastic news and supports one of my key ambitions of improving job opportunities across the region. I want to ensure that everyone, regardless of background or personal circumstances, can access support to develop workplace skills so that they can fulfil their potential. Digital and tech is an important part of the West of England’s economy, and businesses have a particular need for skilled employees now, and this demand is expected to grow in future.

“Women are currently under-represented in digital roles and this new project will seek to tackle this by engaging with a wide group of women in communities, with the aim of moving us towards more representative and inclusive employment in digital roles across the region. This could include roles in virtual reality, VFX design or software development.”

Since four shortlisted designs were announced in March 2018, it’s all gone pretty quiet on the massive redevelopment of Old Street Roundabout. But things are due to ramp up a notch tomorrow (20 March), when Phase B — the advanced highway works — begins.

The minimal changes we’ve seen so far are the December 2018 closure of The Magic Roundabout, the bar and club venue located in the middle of the roundabout, and a bit of digging on Cowper Street, to the south east of the roundabout. The digging work allowed utility works in the area to be relocated to make way for a new entrance to Old Street station on Cowper Street.

Cowper Street is now closed to pedestrians at the roundabout end (by EAT) until November 2019 to allow work on building that new entrance to begin. One lane of traffic has been removed on the southeast stretch of the roundabout, and fenced off to create a safe passage for pedestrians to pass through the works.

This week’s next phase of work will see the removal of the traffic islands from all four arms of the roundabout — so if you’re walking through the area, best use the subways to cross the road. Bus stops in the area may be temporarily relocated while these works take place too, so do check if you normally catch a bus in the area.

Phase B wraps up in late May, when Phase C begins — and that’s the biggie. The southeastern section of the roundabout (again, that’s the corner near Cowper Street) closes to traffic from 24 May, to allow for construction of that new entrance. Two-way traffic will flow around the rest of the junction, and dedicated cyclist and pedestrian routes will be created through the works.

Ultimately, the junction will no longer be a roundabout at all — the northwestern section will become pedestrianised, and two-way traffic will replace the current roundabout traffic flow. Three of the four existing entrances to the station will be removed — the Cowper Street entrance will replace the four existing subway entrances, and a main entrance will be built above ground in the new pedestrianised area. We’ve not yet got an expected finish date for the work.

So what will the final design look like? That’s still being kept under wraps — we’ve never had confirmation that one of those four shortlisted designs will actually be used — and the images have since been removed from Islington Council’s website, as has the shortlist announcement, suggesting that there’s now a new plan. Additionally, recently-announced plans to limit traffic using Old Street have been tied to the roundabout redesign, so the final design may hinge on that going ahead.

According to Islington Council, “work is continuing to develop a design for an ‘Iconic Gateway'” — watch this space.

TfL is warning of possible road traffic delays through the area throughout the duration of the work. For further information on upcoming works, see the TfL website.

London-based artist Thomas Duke recreates film scenes set in London (and beyond).

London is full of famous film sets, and many of them are iconic. Take the bench scene in Love Actually for example, or Mary Poppins flying over the Thames.

If you’re a bit of a set-jetter, you’ll undoubtably be a fan Thomas Duke’s artwork, where he takes stills from his favourite films to their real life locations and snaps them with the perfect backdrop. He’s been to around 150 film locations since he started the photography project, and many of them are in London.

Duke’s attention to detail is incredible — he really nails the positions, the angles and the perspective in every photo. Here are some of our favourites, but you can follow him on Instagram here.

1. Atonement – filmed at Whitehall.

2. This super-cute scene from About Time – filmed at Maida Vale station.

3. Edge of Tomorrow – filmed at the Ministry of Defence.

4. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – filmed at Warner Bros. Studio Tour.

5. The Imitation Game – filmed at King’s Cross station.

6. Les Misérables – filmed at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich.

7. Shaun of the Dead – filmed at Weston Park Grocery.

8. Sherlock Holmes – filmed at Brompton Cemetery.

9. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – filmed at Regent Street.

10. Thor: The Dark World – filmed on the Jubilee line.

If there’s a man in your life, or in the parental unit of your family, where does he sit in the stack of Christmas presents you have to buy? It saddens me that my great man, who I love, is now not the recipient of the first gifts in my basket, because, that’s now the kids. He’s not changed, and nor have I, so, why do men in your life become harder to buy presents for…
