Creative Leadership

The Voice Of Young Leaders

Our youth leadership and training programme provides several pathways for young people to engage with the wider community including practical training and work placements.

Creative Leadership

Work Experience
Develop your creativity, confidence and event skills
Saturday 18 - 25 May 2024

We offer work experience opportunities for students in schools and colleges. Young people can speak to us directly or we are happy to connect with schools and local authority about arranging placements for groups of young people.
During work experience, young people will learn what happens behind the scenes in community arts and engagement settings. They will work directly with all members of our team to experience creative and administrative aspects of the work, as well as connect with our research projects and lend their insights into shaping youth-centred programmes.
Please note that spaces are limited and we offer priority spaces to members of Second Wave.
