Blueprint Traineeships

Hands-on experience of a working studio


We offer training opportunities for young people with barriers to employment, providing hands-on experience of a working studio in a friendly, nurturing environment for those who need it most.

Our trainee programme helps young people develop skills for the workplace, as well as offering the chance to build their own creative portfolio. Trainees learn how to carry out print jobs for customers, develop their design skills, communicate professionally with clients and much more.

We’ve partnered with Thistle charity’s InterAct project, working with young people with additional support needs, and we’ve also taken referrals from Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and the JET Programme, a job, employment and training programme for high school students.
