Creating Safety: child protection and youth arts
Accredited Training Course
12th May 2011, 10 am- 4.15 pm, Kala Sangam, Bradford
Artswork is pleased to be delivering this essential one day accredited course -'Creating Safety: child protection and youth arts' in partnership with Kala Sangam in Bradford. This course is being delivered as part of the 'Progress' Project. 'Progress' is subsiding places for those booking on from voluntary or community organisations (See below).
Artswork is the largest provider of specialist youth arts training courses and publications in the UK and all training and publications are written and supported by experienced youth arts specialists, all of whom are also currently involved in direct project work with young people.
This one day course is essential training for anyone working within youth arts, but especially those using more physical art forms, such as dance and drama. Developed in conjunction with South East Dance this course compliments the Arts Council England "Keeping Arts Safe" guidelines developed with the NSPCC . The training will cover current child protection legislation in line with the requirements of the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB), within the context of delivering a youth arts project and includes a "safe touch" section, exploring how child protection guidelines can be maintained within more physical art forms.
It will be of benefit to individuals and organisations looking to develop their own child protection policy and maintain standards of good practice, providing practical advice and guidelines to develop confidence and sensible structures around child protection issues within youth arts.

Evaluating Youth Arts Projects
6th October 2011, 10 am- 4.15 pm, Kala Sangam, Bradford
This one-day training course explores the benefits of meaningful evaluation of youth arts projects. Beginning by addressing preconceptions around evaluation (constructive exercise or chore?) the course will progress to examine methodologies, structured approaches and case studies using a series of collaborative exercises and tutor led presentations. Informative and practical, this course will help you develop your own individual approach to creative evaluation and the confidence you need to engage with evaluating youth arts projects.
Rachel Hall, Artsplan Development Manager, commented:
"Well planned, structured and meaningful evaluations are essential skills needed to effectively project manage. This course will provide you with creative examples and useful case studies in order to prepare you for thorough and inclusive evaluations".
All participants will receive a certificate of attendance upon successful completion of the course and a wealth of practical resources. Prices for each course, which include lunch and refreshments, range from £110 to £150, with limited bursaries available.
