In recognition of the first generation of older teenagers at Big Noise Raploch, we have developed new strands of work to support our participants as they make the transition to adulthood.
- the Youth Board, who help to feed into decision-making about the programme and support younger participants;
- youth teaching assistants who help with our musicians with delivery;
- the chance to work towards useful qualifications while supporting our work (such as internship and practical experience opportunities through our partnership with Forth Valley College and a new Modern Apprenticeship opportunity within Big Noise Raploch);
- supporting young people to work towards their Dynamic Youth Awards, which are equivalent to Nat 3 and help young people to develop transferable skills such as planning, independent thinking and teamwork.
