Celestina and Teletubbies

First launched in March 2017, the ipprenticeship Program is designed to improve diversity and inclusion in the interactive digital media industry in Ontario.

The program sees new grads and emerging talent take part in week-long paid placements at leading interactive digital media companies.

The apprentices receive a combination of shadowing and one-on-one meetings with key team members, gain behind-the-scenes exposure and information, and have highly beneficial access to industry professionals and networks.

Participating companies benefit from the chance to meet a large, diverse pool of talented candidates and the opportunity to work closely with the selected participants during their placements, giving them access to the best and brightest up-and-coming interactive digital media professionals.

The participants for the inaugural cohort are:

  • Nuha Alkadi & Rebecca Mitchell – The Ubisoft Toronto Women in Games ipprenticeship
  • Robin Della Corte – Groupe Média TFO’s Digital, Educational, Francophone media ipprenticeship
  • Celestina Aleobua – DHX Media’s Youth of Underrepresented Background web design and/or IT ipprenticeship
