Unemployment, poverty, disability, sexuality and race are just some of the issues that create barriers for young people to access training and employment opportunities. Staged for Life is tackling this by running an outreach programme throughout the East of Scotland. We work with groups of marginalised and disadvantaged young people to run taster sessions - fun, interactive 2 hour workshops that allow participants to use various bits of sound and lighting equipment.
It's also a chance for us to talk about all of the opportunities there are in the events industry, including our upcoming accredited training programmes and supported work placements. If you are an organisation working with young people, please get in touch to talk about organising a taster session. We also run training programmes in schools, youth-centres and Jobcentres.
