Introducing young people to careers in the creative and cultural sector
We deliver employability projects and apprenticeships to provide young people with the opportunity to gain skills, confidence and practical experience in their local arts, culture and heritage organisations.
Through these programmes, we aim to increase access and broaden the horizons of young people whilst diversifying our creative and cultural workforce. We offer young people the chance to attain nationally recognised qualifications as part of their program, alongside their work experience, equipping them for future employment or further training.
