The one-day course, ‘Using the Arts to raise Aspiration, Leadership and Potential’, has been created as part of the legacy for the 2009 ENYAN Campaign ‘Young Arts Leaders’ and has been developed following a period of research conducted by ENYAN, throughout the 9 English regions into how participation in cultural activities can have a significant impact on young people’s development and can give young people the chance to develop important life skills such as creativity, confidence, self discipline, effective communication and the ability to work in teams.


This course is suitable for anyone, professional or voluntary, seeking to use or develop the arts in their work with young people. It looks to demonstrate how the arts can be used as a mechanism to develop young people’s leadership skills, aspiration and potential. It celebrates inspirational examples of young people who have excelled through engagement in youth-led arts projects, continue to achieve well and are an inspiration to both the youth and cultural sectors at large. The course also benefits from being part facilitated by young people who have taken on leadership roles within a creative setting.


All participants will receive a certificate of attendance upon successful completion of the course and a wealth of practical resources. Artsplan is subsidising the cost of the training in return for a short 20 minute feedback session with participants at the end of the day. The cost of training has therefore been reduced to £75* (normal training charges vary from £150- £110) which includes all training resources, lunch, refreshments and certification.
