Foot in the Door

Foot in the Door (FITD) is a series of courses that will enable you to grow your employability skills, give you a minimum of 90 hours experience working within an organisation and get a head start in the creative sector. FITD is an opportunity for 60 young creatives throughout 2017 to build a legacy in the creative and cultural industry in Birmingham.

Creative Alliance is the leading training provider within the creative and cultural sector in the Midlands. We are working with partner organisations* with funding from Arts Connect to help the city’s creative talent aged 16-23, to get a foot in the door of this sector. We especially want to encourage those from a diverse background who may not have had such an opportunity before to apply.

We have an additional set of courses available – applications open on November 23 and the deadline for all of the opportunities is 11th December, 2017.

You don’t need any prior experience, just the will to get stuck in and an open mind!
