Caramel Rock is an educational charity that provides courses and training. We focus on the creative industries supporting young people to access varied training and opportunities. We provide services for people of different academic levels and age groups from young students on the verge of being expelled in schools and are seeking a more creative approach, to learning to adults seeking to gain more qualifications who have an option of enrolling on our evening classes.
We run grassroots community development projects to enrich the lives of local people in the community and use creative arts as a tool to engage and empower young people by connecting the disconnected.
The students and adults that enrol on our programme are given the opportunity to connect to respected individuals in organizations and companies and gain internship and job offers as a result of our assistance. We develop their skills in a way they can contribute to the wider society and excel in their field of study. This gives them a sense of achievement and also enables them to identify themselves as role models and influencers to their fellow peers and young people. Even when they are given internships, work placements and job offers we continue to offer assistance where needed and follow up on their progress.
Below are a few things we do:
•We run in-house training programmes and outreach workshops.
•We give opportunities in fashion and the creative arts, linking corporate companies with local people.
•We run events and fashion shows throughout the year.
•We run high volume of partnership projects for schools and educational institutions.
•We provide work experience opportunities for our students.
