How does coaching work?

The Arts Emergency coaching programme is an opportunity for Young Community members to apply with a particular project / goal in mind. We match successful applicants with professionals working in creative industries who can coach you towards achieving your goals.

What will you get out of it?

In your application, we ask you to outline a project / goal you want to work on in the 10-week programme. Before you apply, have a think about what this might be.

For example:

  • you want to speak with specific arts professionals to help build your creative network

  • you are making a funding or project application and need help with the process

  • you want a better understanding of roles in your area of interest to help you know what jobs you want to pursue

  • you need help identifying what your strengths are and how you can use these to achieve your ambitions

  • you have lots of experience but need help building your CV or portfolio

As a coachee, you are supported to explore ideas and come up with your own solutions. You work with your coach to consider what actions and opportunities will help you achieve your project / goal. Instead of giving you answers, your coach asks you questions that help you unlock solutions that are right for you. The coaching process can help you to gain a deeper understanding of what you are working on and build problem-solving skills towards realising your goal.

After completing your 10-week coaching you'll also get access to professional networking and development opportunities until your 26th birthday, as part of our Young Community.
