This is an intensive 12 week training and support programme to help increase and integrate the pathways to entrepreneurship for local young people affected by, engaged in, or at risk of engaging in violence and crime. These 18 –24 year olds are either marginalised by the labour market or face various barriers that make this transition difficult. We help to develop their resilience and skills for the creative industry.
The focus is not only on developing the practical skills required for product design and print, but will include developing core communication, relationship and customer service skills; connect participants to valuable resources, insights and feedback for exploration, guidance and coaching.
This approach will enable participants to curate their own learning experiences with whatever resources they need. Pressing curation nearer to the learner increases quality and validity and encouraging self-directed learning and sharing amongst teams.
In our Enterprise Hub, young designers take part in our innovative "3D" design project comprising T-shirt and Baseball cap design, decoration and fabric printing, researching historical and modern trends, styles, colour, design and exploring their influences and impact on present-day fashion with visits to brand retailers and entrepreneurs, shops as well as online
This approach will involve working with local partners to enable the participants learn practical entrepreneurial skills relevant to achieving successful careers in the creative industries.< Back to projects
