Raising Aspirations: Performing Higher: Reaching Potential

AIM Arts Academy is an exciting new project run by AIMCommunityFYT in Bournemouth and Poole working with young people aged 14-19 who are NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training). AIM Arts Academy ran for an initial trial year funded by Youth Music and EVERY young person who completed the course gained both new meanngful qualifications and moved on into further study or employment at the conclusion.

AAA uses the creative arts including music, music technology, dance, theatre, animation and creative media to engage young people who have fallen through the gaps in their education. Alongside developing their creativity, they are able to increase their qualifications, access tutoring in maths, English and ICT, have work placements in their preferred industry, improve their employability and receive one to one mentoring support.

The AIMCommunityFYT team of experienced musicians, DJs, dancers, script writers, actors, animators, designers, teachers, youth workers and volunteers create a unique learning experience which can only inspire and enable young people to 'not just not fail, but flourish and succeed'.
