The National Saturday Club gives 13–16-year-olds across the country the opportunity to study subjects they love at their local university, college or cultural institution, for free.
Offering dynamic creative learning programmes in seven subject areas – Art&Design, Craft&Making, Fashion&Business, Film&Media, Science&Engineering, Society&Change and Writing&Talking – the model works to develop young people’s skills, nurture their talents and encourage their creativity.
This year, 1,500 young people attended 74 Saturday Clubs in 56 locations nationwide. This transformational programme is made possible by the energy and commitment of 250+ tutors, 150+ student assistants, and 500+ industry partners.
As a powerful, countrywide network of shared knowledge and best practice, the model represents an exceptional opportunity to build young people’s creative skills and embolden them to become the next generation of innovators and imaginative thinkers. It also serves to connect educators and industry professionals so young people are better informed about the choices that exist for further education and rewarding careers.
