About

All children & young people have the right to access new experiences and opportunities 
to live a fulfilling life that builds a brighter future

Creative Academies Network is a multi-layered organisation that supports the development of children & young people to reach their full potential through Cultural Education, Creative Practice & Civic Leadership as a catalyst for cultural, social and economic change.

To achieve our mission we have set five core goals

  • Children & Young People can access  & engage in arts, culture, heritage, media & sport.
  • Children & Young People can engage in education, employment & volunteering.
  • Children & Young People can access recreational & leisure time provision.
  • Children & Young People become motivated, self-aware, receptive, resilient, responsible, confident, and good communicators.
  • Children & Young People can access support, advice & training in their local community.

It is important we get the foundation just right to raise the aspirations and ambitions of children and young people locally and nationally

Work with Us

We are providing Jobs, Work Experience, Youth Leadership & Volunteering opportunities across the Black Country.

Youth Ambassador (Youth Management Board)

Creative Academies Network (CAN) has an exciting opportunity for up to twelve creative, passionate and dedicated 16 – 26 year olds to form its Youth Management Board (YMB). These voluntary positions will help steer the direction of CAN and play an integral role in ensuring CAN continues to engage with young people from across Sandwell, Wolverhampton, Walsall and Dudley (Black Country).

Successful applicants will commit to a 12-month position on the YMB and attend at least 10 meetings per year, as well as participate in training and other engagement activities to support your own personal development that will feed into the responsibilities of the YMB. In addition you may select to sit on our specific project steering committees. 

Acting as ambassadors for CAN, the YMB will be invited to get involved and support CAN to ensure that young people are central to our future. In addition, it is essential that you can demonstrate a clear commitment to the development of young people and local communities across the Black Country. The successful young person must either currently live, work or learn in Sandwell, Wolverhampton, Walsall or Dudley. Have enthusiasm for one or more of the following: 

  • Arts, Culture and Heritage
  • Sports, Health and Wellbeing
  • Education, Employment and Enterprise
  • Social Media and Marketing
  • Youth Social Action, Volunteering and Leadership

During the 12-month period all Youth Management Board Members will have a series of opportunities made available in order to help develop leadership potential, knowledge of sector and business management. As this is a development role, we are seeking varied young people at different stages of their journey/career, but loads of energy and enthusiasm is a requirement. Due to the nature of the YMB, evening and weekend attendance/work may be required.

If you are interested and passionate about the opportunity, please down our application or submit a short 3 minute video (no technical skills required) or schedule a telephone interview, that responds to the following.

  • Why you are interested in becoming YMB member?
  • The knowledge, skills and experience that you can bring?
  • Why is your local area important to you?
  • An interesting fact about yourself that you would like us to know?

It is important to us that formal processes are not considered as a barrier, so we are happy to arrange a telephone conversation about this opportunity.

All success shortlisted submissions will be required to attend a group session.

CAN is strongly committed to diversity. We strive to recruit, retain and advance people of all backgrounds so that our workforce reflects the diversity of our communities. For more information, please email n.maj@creativeacademies.co.uk
