Learning Through Art

Thursdays, 4:30pm to 6pm

Learning through Art is more than an Art club; it is not just about the final product (although there will always be something amazing to show) it is about the journey to that point, using the creative process as a learning tool.

Classes are designed by an experienced Primary Teacher to encourage children’s creativity, raise self-esteem and develop knowledge and understanding across the curriculum, whilst having fun. Learning through Art gives structure, guidance and purpose to children’s natural curiosity and desire to learn and understand. It teaches them how to become independent learners using Art as their tool.

Prince's Trust

Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10 million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1 billion every year.

We address this by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most. We help develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training.

Programmes to support young people

We run programmes that encourage young people to take responsibility for themselves – helping them build the life they choose rather than the one they’ve ended up with:

  • The Enterprise programme provides money and support to help young people start up in business.
  • The Team programme is a 12-week personal development course, offering work experience, qualifications, practical skills, community projects and a residential week.
  • Get Started are short courses designed to help young people develop new skills, build confidence and have fun, helping them to move forwards in their lives.
  • Get into are short courses offering intensive training and experience in a specific sector to help young people get a job.
  • Development Awards are small grants to enable young people to access education, training or work.
  • Prince's Trust xl clubs give 13-19 year olds who are at risk of truanting, exclusion and underachievement a say in their education. They aim to improve attendance, motivation and social skills.
  • The Fairbridge programme works with young people aged 13-25, giving them the motivation, self-confidence and skills they need to change their lives.

We also have Job Ambassadors who have been in the young person's position and which can help you with advice, guidance and inspiration.

If you’re aged 18-30, unemployed or working fewer than 16 hours a week, the Enterprise programme can help you decide whether self-employment is right for you.

How it works

The programme can give you:

  • Training to give you a taste of what you need to know and do to start your own business
  • One-to-one support to help you to explore and test your idea and turn it into a business plan
  • Support to apply for a low interest loan of up to £4,000 for a sole trader and up to £5,000 for a partnership to help you to start your business*
  • Mentoring to help you develop your business or access other opportunities in education, training, work or volunteering

Our Explore Enterprise workshops are four day courses that are held in selected areas in the North West of England and cover a range of topics such as sales and marketing, tax and accounting, business planning and more.

The workshops are free to attend but please contact our team to book onto a session. You will be asked for your contact details and invited to attend an Information Session ahead of the workshop to give you more details of the course.

Family Activity Referral

Trafford Leisure project up date – further to the successful BALANCE project 2016/2017 we are happy to announce a follow up project to support families with children between the ages of 5 and 13 years. This programme is there to support children of all abilities and your family specialist referral lead will be there to support any needs you may have.

The new Family Activity Referral will support each family through 12 weeks of physical activity access at Trafford Leisure facilities and community activities across the borough. 

We will have a new family specialist referral lead who will be liaising closely with the families and a direct link for you to discuss each referred family.

We urge you to communicate personally with the lead to add specifics that might not traditionally go on a form. Please update on any important updates that would be beneficial for the lead to know so they can support the families appropriately.

Where this programme differs from the BALANCE programme is that there will be no waiting list. The families will be seen within a week of first contact, each family will start their 12 week journey independently.

The 12 weeks will be free of charge for the family and children up to the age of 13 years. Due to criteria restrictions in the funding gained, those children over 13 years will be subject to a small weekly attendance fee or can be referred into the regular Physical Activity Referral Programme. As well as accessing the activities as a family unit at least once a week, family members will be able to, and encouraged to, use the facilities independently.  We feel this independent training enables family members to achieve any personal goals or take some respite.

We are really excited about this new offer and we hope you are too. We’d love to come and speak to you (and the team) about this and answer any questions you may have ahead of launching in June. To arrange a meeting, please contact us on the details below:

Swimming and Activity sessions at Partington Sports Village for young people with additional needs

Who are we?

Sport Works supports children/young people with a range of disabilities including; Moderate and Severe Learning Difficulties, Physical and Mental Learning Difficulties, Autism and Social Interaction Difficulties. Generally these children/young people enjoy sports and games but often have particular difficulties with balance, coordination, social and communication skills and often find it difficult to take part.

At Partington Sports Village we provide 2 hour weekly sessions for disabled young people aged 4-25 years. Each session will be split into 2 x 1 hour periods, 1 hour in the sports hall and 1 hour in the swimming pool.  We offer a range of physical activities designed to develop basic skills, increasing activity in a fun/social environment and ensure these young people receive individualised support within a non-threatening, inclusive environment.

We also attempt to reduce the burden on families who need to find activities for their children outside of education and allow young people to benefit from meeting new people and trying new things.

‘Reach Out So We Reach You’

At Alchemy Arts we work with many partners across the North West and so don’t believe in having one main venue. We are a mobile arts organisation, that personally visit our community or organise specific venues depending on the community we are working with. We find this is much better for our clients so they can explore different areas and get the feel of Alchemy being a fun, safe and educational environment.
