Enterprising Pathways is a Creative Employability programme for unemployed young people aged 16 to 26 in North Ayrshire. During the 12 week project young people will get training support from a dedicated Creative Lead Tutor and Pastoral/Youth Worker enabling them to advance their practical and interpersonal skills whilst developing key creative skills.
Participants will gain new artistic and practical creative skills throughout the project, for example woodworking or furniture upcycling, fashion or design, landscaping or landscape design skills etc.
Young People will also be given the opportunity to engage in an enterprise project that will be focused around responding to local community needs or gaps in the market. This will enable the participants to utilises there new found skills within a community setting and/or give them an avenue to have a high street presence (through pop-up shops).
All participants will be provided with one-to-one support with progression planning such as CV writing, self-employment guidance where applicable, as well as job searching/matching. They will also work towards gaining a Level 4 SQA-accredited qualifications.
This programme is for everyone – not just creative types. We just ask that you are open to the idea of working creatively in order that you are able to achieve amazing things.
