CashBack for Creativity is part of the Scottish Government’s CashBack for Communities initiative, managed by Creative Scotland which uses monies recovered through the Proceeds of Crime Act to benefit Scotland’s young people.
CashBack at Screen Education Edinburgh is a high quality learning experience covering short film watching, understanding and production, with the priority of engaging young people in areas of deprivation and those from excluded or minority groups across Edinburgh and South East Scotland.
The programme has three levels; initial tasters partnering schools, youth org’s and communities, a Film Intro stage introducing young people over 8 weeks to all areas of film, and for progressing learners a Next Steps programme of projects taking place over 4 months. Arts Award qualification is embedded into each stage of the programme, whilst progression support towards further study and into the workplace is at the heart of the programme for all participants post school age.
Traineeships are also a key part of the programme, with SEE offering paid 3 month roles supporting the tutor team, offering vital skills and career development to young people as their first steps into the workplace.
