Creative Transitions

Creative Transitions
Creative Transitions


For young people aged 16-25 with additional needs who are looking for opportunities to develop their arts skills, experience and talents, alongside further education, 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, including acting, music, film, dance, multimedia technology or a combination, short or longer term, together we find the way forward. 

Creative Transitions is an outreach project aimed at bringing young people together, 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.
