WE’RE RECRUITING FOR YEAR 2 OF OUR CREATIVE BREAKS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME!

We are so excited to be coming back around to delivering another exciting career development programme for 25 people in Manchester. This year, we’ve changed things up a bit, incorporating a few changes to our training and coaching programme. Ultimately we will be delivering even better support, training, coaching and mentoring and with an expanded team of supporters, mentors and industry experts. See below for our poster promoting our application process… apply now as applications will close when we’ve filled the places!

Last year, we got to showcase our work at our celebration event in December…

There isn’t a better way to get hand on experience, develop and expand  your portfolio, build upon and learn new skills, learn about new techniques, nurture yourself and widen your horizons than this programme. We’ve developed the programme based on years of hand on experience as well as all our best ideas all rolled into one fantastic experience for you.

Panda Arts, our delivery partners share our outlook and approach to this type of work… creating safe spaces, focussing on personal development and communication, giving you the best support we can find, understanding we’re all facing challenges and having the strength and desire to work around them, being genuinely passionate about supporting and nurturing the next generation of change-makers.

This programme has been endorsed by MEP Julie Ward, local councillors, social entrepreneurs, organisations and businesses as a fantastic opportunity that leads to real results for the participant. Read more about what our participants from last year go on to below…
