Funding Body/Client: Reaching Communities
Goals: Improve employability among disadvantaged young people
Blueprint began delivering employment focused courses over five years ago, and we have continually fine-tuned our practice over the years to achieve the best outcomes for our participants. Over the past two years we have been developing a robust employment programme and developing and delivering our courses for disadvantaged young people across Tower Hamlets and Hackney.
These courses offer young people a chance to experience a real-working environment, giving them a level of responsibility they would not obtain on a training course. By participating, young people gain and develop skills to support them both in the classroom and into the world of employment. Our focus is to develop skills that are useful tools as they take on the employment market, such as creative thinking, presentation, leadership and resilience. All of these are skills are carefully nurtured through an exciting filmmaking process and all our participants have the opportunity to gain Arts Award accreditation.
We very excited to announce that we have just secured three years worth of funding from Reaching Communities to continue our Employment Programme. This money will allow us to continue our work with young people in Tower Hamlets and Hackney and also support them into further training and employment opportunities.
