Free “have a go” creative workshop

student working

On Monday 12th May 2014, between 1pm – 2:30pm Leeds City College will be opening the doors of inc.workshop to deliver a range of exciting activities for 14-19 year olds to learn new skills and have a go at “hands on” creative practice.

“Have a go” activities are the perfect way to try new skills to help young people find out what they are good at, and provide a means to inspire them to think differently about vocational education while gaining from the knowledge and expertise of college staff.

At the event, young people will also have the opportunity to access careers advice, gain an insight into real jobs, careers and apprenticeships, and gain an understanding of the creative industry from specialist workshop staff.

The event is open anyone who is 14-19 years old; not just Leeds City College students.
