We will be launching our Creative Placements project again as soon as it is safe to do so.
Creative Placements offer a pre-employment work experience placement, supporting adults with learning disabilities and/or autism, to run and work in our event management and design service, designing and building art installations and large-scale decoration projects such as branding events, festivals and corporate events.
Creatives will have the opportunity to:
- Work at music festivals and other large-scale events, such as Glastonbury and BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend
- Organise events of our own and on behalf of other organisations
- Gain real work experience in a fully-functioning business, in a safe and supported work environment.
- Learn new skills, build confidence and reach your potential.
Thanks to funding from The Fore, we have trialed a new project, creating a Digital Events Team, supporting a small group of adults with learning disabilities and/or autism to organise a virtual event, learning new digital skills, as well as event management and business skills.
The project will be delivered online, testing a new way of delivering work experience and skill-learning.
We will be launching a learning disability employment campaign later in the year, aiming to get more adults with learning disabilities into paid employment.
Later in the year we hope to be moving in to our new premises in Bishop Auckland! More updates to follow.
