In a different location, the hugely successful CDYS East Cork Music Project, in partnership with the ETB, runs it’s Local Training Initiative.
ECMP held an information Day on April 24th, at their headquarters in Ballinacurra Business Park. A series of demonstrations of the work that the participants do in music, arts and crafts was laid on for the large crowd who gathered.
In it’s second year running, students attend daily to gain skills and confidence to enable them to progress into further education, training and employment. Students of the project study modules in music performance, vocal performance. music theory, art, maths and core personal development.
The project which began in July 2011 is certified by FETAC, London Rock School and ABRSM. It is aimed at young people aged 16 to 25 who are faced with challenging circumstances with the focus of the program to provide an opportunity for participants to progress to full time training or employment.
