Creative Transitions

Creative Transitions


For over 16s with additional needs who are looking for opportunities to develop their arts skills, experience and talents, alongside and post school and college, Creative Transitions (CT) offers creative routes through education, employability and work experience into adulthood. 
With individual mentoring and opportunities for leadership, progression, Arts Awards accreditation and work placements this is a chance to explore and be inspired. Whatever the starting point, we’re here to support.
Taking time to discover and build on individual strengths and interests, whether in acting, music, film, dance, multimedia technology or a combination, short or longer term, together we find the way forward. 


An outreach project aimed at bringing together young people, reducing social isolation and promoting the premise of reaching positive destinations in life through the arts. CT focuses on the young person’s strengths, capabilities and the outcomes they want to achieve.
