All our learners come from a diverse background and study at various educational institutions.  They share their personal journey whilst being part of The Creative Industries Employability and Placement Programme through THE HOUSE OF RADHA.  They share their experience and talk about the skills they have gained to use in future careers and employment.


Higher Education live projects provide the students a real hands-on experience in working with THE HOUSE OF RADHA directly. Students are assessed on the methods used throughout the process to complete the project and provided with feedback. This is an opportunity to gain essential employability skills and experience.

Cultures and Values matter..

Working for THE HOUSE OF RADHA was interesting and allowed me to learn a lot about many different complexities of marketing.

It has improved my creativity and research skills..

I have become more organised as I have had to manage my placement, work, and university at the same time. It has also improved my creativity, through creating social media posts and website ideas, and with this my research skills have become stronger, especially working towards deadlines each week. ”
