Zaneb Khatun working out of the ordinaryTake a look at our fabulous new films, Working out of the Ordinary, produced by Nick Farrimond as part of our Trainees project. The six short films aim to show young people in the Pendle Hill area a range of lesser known exciting careers, and the idea that 'working out of the ordinary' is possible without leaving the locality. All of the films relate to the Pendle Hill landscape and partnership – ranging through community development, cycling, outdoor adventure and creative arts. Season two will air in 2022.


Phil Wade working out of the ordinarySix local inspirational people have provided an insight into their jobs, what they do day-to-day, the skills required and their career journey. There is also an “action” section to each episode, giving information and details about how you could pursue this career, and the qualifications and experience you would need. Teachers and careers advisers are encouraged to use the films with their students and a handy booklet describing the six stories can be downloaded here https://www.pendlehillproject.com/working-out-ordinary

Big thanks to the six unique individuals who have shared their career history with us. The films have been made possible with thanks to Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership, National Lottery Heritage Fund and film maker Nick Farrimond working with Parvez Qadir
