That's why we offer a number of ways for you to get your foot back on the ladder towards a career you'll love.
Our Careers Courses are designed to get you inspired and motivated, by helping you work towards an arts qualification with people interested in the same creative subjects that you are. These free courses are available for 16-25 year olds who are not in education, training or employment.
Our Careers Advice service can help you when you're ready to start finding work. We'll help you set goals, polish your CV and look for work experience, while our specialist job coaches give you one-to-one advice.
