As part of their groundbreaking “Get Started” Programme, The Prince’s Trust teamed up with Giga Training to deliver a DJ Skills programme in Belfast for young people aged 16-20 who are currently not in education, employment or training.
The programme took place Monday 9th December to Friday 13th December @ Strand Arts Centre, Belfast. The course was designed to give participants a unique insight into one of the most sought after careers in the music business today, with hands on experience and training using state of the art equipment endorsed by superstar DJs around the globe.
During the 5 day long programme, 14 participants taking part not only gained a range of new skills but an OCN Level 1 accredited qualification to boot. The Prince’s Trust also supply three months of support after the programme to help participants move into education, employment or training.
