The AP FOUNDATION offers five interactive courses to help prepare young adult offenders for employment in the media business.

  • Music Industry
  • Audio: Radio & Digital Production
  • Film & Television
  • Live Performance & Theatre
  • Creative Writing

All our courses are accredited and are led by a senior tutor skilled in working in secure environments alongside a media specialist, supported by guest lecturers and media professionals at the top of their game.

Students who successfully complete their selected course will be eligible for a four-week work placement during their ROTL or on release.  Subject to their work placement review, each student will then be offered their first professional job or a place on an AP Foundation apprenticeship in their chosen media field.

DONATE NOW AND YOU COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO CHANGE LIVES

Young adult offenders often relate to those who have ‘walked in their shoes’, those who have the lived experience of the criminal justice system. The AP Foundation believe that the ex-offender community has an important role to play in resettlement and rehabilitation.

Arts, culture and media programmes are also an effective way of engaging difficult to engage young adult people in productive activities connected with their leisure interests, developing their vocational and transferable employment skills, boosting their employability and reducing re-offending.
