Futuremedia to develop video learning community

Learning and brand communications provider Futuremedia is to develop an online academy for the Fifteen Foundation, the charity formed by UK chef Jamie Oliver to help disadvantaged young people enter the restaurant industry.

Futuremedia says its learning model will distribute learning material alongside user-generated videos created by the students to relay their learning experience.

The Fifteen Foundation is aiming to build Fifteen into a global social enterprise brand inspiring young people all over the world. Fifteen Amsterdam opened in December 2005, Fifteen Cornwall in May 2006 and Fifteen Melbourne in September 2006. The organisation says it is actively exploring possibilities in other parts of the UK and overseas.

Liam Black, director of the Fifteen Foundation, said: "Futuremedia is a terrific partner for the Fifteen Foundation with its proven track record and knowledge of the Internet business as an educational platform.

"We believe and expect that this new, online academy will bring Fifteen's unique course to a much wider audience and truly take the charity's work to a global level."

The final web site will offer a variety of sponsorship and subscription opportunities to organisations, such as continuing education colleges.
