Young people looking to break into the creative and digital industries were given a helping hand by The Printing Charity.

The charity awarded grants of up to £1,500 to help fund costs associated with relevant training courses for a career in printing, publishing or graphic arts through its Print Futures Awards.

In total 50 young people were given bursaries this year, which were presented to them at a special ceremony hosted by Baroness Dean at the House of Lords. The figure broke last year’s record, when 37 young people benefitted from the scheme. Eight of the winners out of the 50 were either from Leeds or the city’s universities and colleges.
