Bafta is known for celebrating excellence at ceremonies such as Sunday's Arqiva British Academy Television Awards, but it also engages in activity to help a diverse range of talented people to develop and grow in their careers.
At some businesses internships are used strategically to identify talented people for hiring, whether now or in the future, and others use them as manpower for valuable research projects. It's time to change mentality that interns are hired to make tea, take photocopies or file papers.
I had begun writing the song, Death Row, in September 2011. The week that I had started to write it, Troy Davis was executed in Georgia after almost 20 years on death row. I was struck by the horrific nature of his sentencing. I believe that the death penalty is wrong in all circumstances, but Troy Davis's case was particularly chilling. After his initial trial, witnesses had admitted that they had lied in their evidence against him.
With youth unemployment just under a million, young people are turning their hand to gardening, graphic design, baking and beauty therapy to escape the dole queue and kick-start their careers.

'Athletes' gave me the same feeling that I experienced decades ago when I first saw 2001, a film that no one could have been prepared for. This dance piece has the same feeling of coming to grips with mortality, fragility, of time passing, and infinity. Like Stanley Kubrick, you can feel this choreographer's utter dedication, his complete self-belief.

We are on a drive to bring people together, in order to help them succeed. Rather than feel de-motivated by the statistics, we are looking at helping individuals and not numbers. Those more experienced are taking the time to help with those who are up-and-coming. Together we can inspire and smash through our personally designed targets to reach a better future.
As an architecture student I've been fascinated by the effects of human ageing and its relationship with architecture. The subject of ageing is a topic of much debate for the government and media, but it has received somewhat less attention in the field of architecture - particularly in the UK.
