Learning for Life


Here is what some of our participants had to say:

"This project has given me the opportunity to meet new people, become part of a network and learn about the creative industries on my doorstep first hand. The course included inspirational visits to cultural institutions such as the Tate Modern and Tate Britain. From the first day I joined my placement organisation I felt part of the team. They were very supportive and have offered me plenty of advice which has helped me in university applications.”

- Ruben, Creative Mentee

"It was a personal journey for me. It puts lessons at school into practice. I learnt not to moan and instead to develop practical solutions to problems. I developed confidence in socialising."

- Creative Mentee

"Working with my mentor was very rewarding for me as there were certain techniques and methods of doing things which I never realised was possible. This was very eye-opening for me."

- Creative Mentee

"The organisation of the delivery project was super-efficient and an indication of ST’s understanding of how to manage a project with so many people and at times delicate factors involved."
