Aged 16-17? Out of work? In North Ayrshire? Join Creative Pathways!

Are you aged 16-17 years old? Are you currently not in work or education? Are you based in North Ayrshire? Are you looking for your next step?

We're looking for applicants for a brand new block of Creative Pathways - our arts-focused employability programme which gives young people access to quality arts tuition and employment support.

This 12 week programme will give you the opportunity to work with our professional artist tutors to learn skills in photography, printmaking, digital art and more.



You will also receive support from dedicated employability support staff who will offer you help with interview skills, building your CV and finding opportunities that inspire you.

What's more, you will earn a £55 weekly training allowance and receive necessary travel expenses.

The programme will run Tuesday - Friday, 10am - 4pm each day, at Impact Arts, 60 Bank Street, Irvine KA12 0LP from Tuesday 25th October 2018 until Friday 14th October 2018.

Interested but want to find out more? We're holding a drop-in information day on Wednesday 19th September 2018 between 1pm and 3pm at 60 Bank Street.
