Inclusive. Interactive. Imaginative
Pathways to Education & Employment
We have a strong track record of working with vulnerable young people and our work with those most ‘at risk’ has proved successful at improving educational attainment.
We work in partnership with schools, alternative education providers, school inclusion teams and other organisations to enrich and support the curriculum in order to increase the engagement of young people in education.
Hackney Learning Trust recognises the need for our work and now regularly commissions us to work with School Inclusion Units and AEPs in the borough.
We have always believed in creating work opportunities for young people in our education and community projects. However, we recognised that many were not in a position to access the opportunities we were creating. In 2005, we identified six key aims for our work including:
...to create pathways to employment in the arts industries for those traditionally not accessing these opportunities.
To address this, we identified volunteering and paid casual work opportunities specifically to suit local young people and established a full time post for a trainee facilitator.
Our Meet the Parents project has been developed to deliver both education and employment opportunities. Meet the Parents trains and employs young parents to deliver Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) workshops in schools.
