This is a specialised printmaking course for people who are unemployed and finding it hard to look for work, which we have designed with the DWP and the National Skills Agency. Courses are funded so are free to participants. Each course consists of twelve half-day workshops and includes creating an exhibition of our students work, to showcase their skills.
We can accommodate up to 25 people per course with
a maximum of 5 students per workshop. Class sizes are kept small so we can provide plenty of one to one tuition and support for our students, which they appreciate. Recent students have progressed into apprenticeships, paid work , further education and vocational training and found their Press Ahead courses helped them feel more confident and able to consider job hunting after illness or redundancy.
We have some places left for Press Ahead courses that are due to run in March 2021.To find out more, contact your DWP work coach or contact us. You must be over 16 yrs, unemployed and receiving benefits to qualify.
