The Printing Charity, a dedicated support organisation for the printing industry, has launched its 15th Rising Star Awards offering anyone aged 18 to 30 the chance to obtain up to £1,500 in funding. 

Previously known as Print Futures, the scheme allows applicants the chance to enhance their career skills in categories such as communication, resilience, presentation skills, leadership and management, and core skills.

The awards are open to anyone working in any position within the wider print industry, primarily including print, paper, packaging, graphics, and publishing, all of which are supported by the charity. 

If successful, applicants will use the grant of up to £1,500 to invest in training on industry-recognised qualifications from professional bodies.

Speaking about her experience with the awards, 2023 winner Gabby Solarek from Eight Days A Week Print Solutions, says: “My award has boosted my confidence, visibility, and profile. I couldn’t be happier.”

The Printing Charity encourages potential candidates to speak to their manager, mentor, HR team, or trusted colleague before making an application to help identify skills gaps or personal goals. 

More information and the application form can be found on the Printing Charity’s website. For more information email awards@theprintingcharity.org.uk. Applications will close on Friday, April 5th.  

Neil Lovell, chief executive officer for the charity, concludes: “The Rising Star Awards are a flagship programme specifically focussed on emerging young talent in our sector. They offer a fantastic opportunity for us to work with businesses in the industry to support and celebrate the range of exceptional rising stars within it. 

“The range of training our 2023 winners applied for really highlights the diversity of roles in our ever-changing and innovative industry and shows the potential for a fulfilling career within it for any young person, regardless of their chosen career pathway.”
