RBS Skills and Opportunities Fund
AND awarded £35k funding for Create Jobs
We were delighted to learn in December 2015 that we had been successful in our bid for £35,000 to fund the expansion of our creative employment programme, Create Jobs.
This was the culmination of a fantastic social media campaign run by young adults who had taken part in Create Jobs programmes, which successfully encouraged the public to vote for A New Direction to receive the funding.
Steve Moffitt, CEO of A New Direction, said of the success:
“We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded £35,000 from the RBS Skills and Opportunities Fund to support Create Jobs.
Through this funding we will support 250 passionate and talented young people with the skills, confidence and knowledge they need to start their careers in the creative industries.”
