We are pleased to announce that we are recruiting for the next REALISE group which will be running between 4 July and 7 September 2012.
REALISE…your potential is a ten week Creative Arts programme for NEET 16/18 year olds living in Leeds. Based at Archway, the programme is delivered over three days a week in the afternoons and each session includes a social lunch where group members eat together.
Throughout the ten weeks, young people will explore their own identity and aspirations in a supportive environment with a vast wealth of resources. The delivery team come from a range of backgrounds and together form an experienced team whose priority is ensuring that every young person on REALISE takes the next step towards employment, however small that step may be.
The REALISE programme is based around a number of different arts activities including photography, painting, collage, printing and social networking. These activities aim to build transferable skills such as communication, presentation, time management and working with others and all aspects of the programme aim to build confidence, self esteem and motivation. Each young person will create an Arts portfolio and a blog, both of which can be useful tools when applying for training, education or employment opportunities. In addition, there is the option to enter work for an Arts Award certificate, a nationally recognised qualification.
