Create To Change

Creative ILM ‘Create to Change’

Create to Change (C2C) is an employment initiative targeting young people aged 16-29. We are seeking local employment opportunities within the creative and cultural sector for 51 young people living in Hull. As part of this exciting project, young people will not only gain valuable experience, they will also be provided with support throughout by an experienced keyworker. Young people will be paid the national minimum wage (dependant on age) whilst being on placement, this payment will be provided by the Goodwin Community Trust. This work experience will take place over the course of twelve weeks, however this can be flexible dependant on the needs of the placement and the young person.
By being a part of this new and exciting venture, employers can play a vital role in equipping the next generation with the skills, knowledge and passion to further shape and develop Hull’s creative and cultural industry and be a part of the city’s future history.

What are we offering?
• One-one keyworker support for both young people and employers (where needed)
• Regular reviews to ensure both parties are working effectively together and that the young people are meeting the needs of the job specification.
• Relevant training organised where required
• Employability skills, job search, CV development, interview preparation
• Group work to support personal and social development
• Maths and English where applicable

The process
To ensure that appropriate young people are enrolled on this scheme, those who apply will be required to go through an initial interview process with an IAG (Information, Advice and Guidance) worker. This will enable us to assess the young person’s strengths, goals and ambitions so that we are able to match people to suitable placements. We are unique in the delivery of this programme as we are connected to other services that support young people. This enables us to enrich the lives of those young people who are work ready by signposting them to alternative provision. Those enrolled will take part in a two-week induction with the keyworkers at The Goodwin Community Hub, they will then be interviewed by the potential placement provider. Successful candidates will be provided with a job specification and the keyworker will be in touch on a weekly basis to ensure that all parties are successful in this match.
