Headliners (UK) North-East England team are delighted to be able to deliver Tyne on Your Side which is a one-year project working with care experienced young people.

The project includes development sessions of Tyne on Your Side: Your Story and Tyne on Your Side: Looking to the Future.

The Tyne on your Side: Your Story sessions take young people through a programme of flexible, hands-on accredited media and pre-employability activities. They undertake personal development challenges, learning how to communicate effectively and enable their voices to be heard. Sessions focus on developing verbal and written communication skills and also using multi-media tools such as filmmaking, podcasting and stories to share their experiences for other young people to learn from.

Tyne on Your Side: Looking to the Future sessions take young people through the basics of building their CV, job searching, managing their money in the future, budgeting and interview practise. We work with partners to support the young people by offering advice and signposting to further education, employment and/or volunteering to gain experience and allow them to transition to independent living with confidence and hope for the future.

We use multi-media to enable the young people to learn skills in photography, podcasting, video creation and editing to showcase their learning and gain OCN accreditation.
