Croydon Innovation Enterprise Project [CIEP]
ICE has been working on the development of CIEP since its inception in December 2010
The focus ~ to engage the young people that attend the project and find outlets for them to express themselves positively. They have opportunities to try their hands at various work experience opportunities, apprenticeships or re-engage with education. In these videos we have expression through the creative arts and also a Mother's testimony.
Working with students from Thomas Tallis School
Developing the "Journey" with the three very different groups at the same school was a very unique experience. The diversity of each group became it's individual strength. The project involved young people charting their individual life journey's and then being guided through the process of creating a collaborative product that expressed key elements of their stories.
Completion of these sessions contributed to an ASDAN COPE qualification [worth grade B at GCSE]
