Young people: Employability

Creative PathwaysCreative Pathways

Creative Pathways is our creative employability programme. It is aimed at people aged 16-24 who aren't involved in education, employment or training. Through the programme, young people are engaged full-time with Impact Arts’ dedicated and inspiring tutors. Creative programmes include: Environmental Design, Product Design, Fashion and Theatre Arts, and are all SQA/Arts Awards accredited. We can also offer work in schools to support children at risk of disengaging or engage those not involved in exams.

Creative Pathways helps young people:

More than 80% of our young people move into further education, jobs or training.
