In tandem with our artistic programme, 198 works with local young people aged 13-25 with multiple and complex needs through our Creative Learning training and outreach programmes. Our programme of skills development, one-to-one support, advice and mentoring provides young people with opportunities to have a voice, reconnect with learning and work towards careers in the Creative and Cultural industries.
We work in partnership with other agencies to develop opportunities for young people. These include weekly courses which operate on a “roll on, roll off” policy, so young people can start at any time as well as one off projects such as Summer School, youth exchanges, film making and artist led workshops. Our courses are accredited via Arts Awards and AQA. We also provide support to young people from low income backgrounds who wish to access Further and Higher education through portfolio development, CV and interview preparation and support with finding the right course for you.
