Support at every stage

Our School workshops are part of a complementary education programme designed specifically for Key Stage 3 and 4 students at risk of becoming disengaged. The programme provides:

  • Support for vulnerable young people transitioning from year 6 to year 7
  • Alternative provision for year 8 and 9 students who need more support in recognising and developing their strengths and key skills
  • Alternative career support for students in years 10 and 11, who are at risk of becoming NEET (not in employment, education or training)

School workshops use creativity to inspire, engage and support students. They can also contribute to formal accreditation through the Arts Award, a scheme that helps students learn more about the creative industries whilst developing practical, critical and personal skills.

The programme is delivered over eleven weeks during term time, both inside and outside the school environment. Teachers and parents are encouraged to participate fully to best support individual students.

At the end of the programme, youth workers from Creative Youth Network help students to transition back into school, as well as providing positive activities and ongoing one-to-one support outside of school, through our youth club network and closed session projects nights.


Costs include planning, tutors, project management, materials and resources, arts award qualification delivery and one-to-one youth work support. Costs are based on group sizes no bigger than 12 and no smaller than 8.

The cost of delivering the programme in your school is £3979.38.

The programme can also be delivered at our city centre site, The Station. Bringing students outside of school gives them a different context in which to learn.

The cost of delivering the programme at The Station is £4579.38 (includes room hire).

Both costs are based on a 11 week delivery. Add-on supplementary progression programmes are not included in these prices.
