This is a new offering – working with our partners we engage young people who would not normally work within our sector. We “target” BAME and under privileged young people who aspire to work with the arts events and entertainment business. By joining the crew this gives young people:
- Ability to earn whilst they learn
- Start a new career in a range of sectors
- Be given skills and qualifications they can take into other working environments
- Choose their own path
- Potentially move onto an apprenticeship
We have additional arrangements with dedicated providers who specialise in training for young people in the technical fields.
This introduction to the various disciplines that we work with such as rigging, sound, lighting, production management and touring together with practical and H&S training gives an excellent foundation on which to build moving forwards.
Our aim is to give our trainees roots and wings.
