Amplify Studios

Amplify Studios is a new creative arts programme from the Rugby Portobello Trust. Our goal is to provide alternative education, creative enterprise and job procurement. We are encouraging young people to explore and grow their creative outlets in a safe and inclusive environment.

We want Amplify Studios to be a powerful tool for change: a safe haven that removes barriers to entry and allows young people to develop their strengths and nurture their passions. Music, visual arts, technology and practical business skills are at the heart of this venture and we are working with young people to introduce and nurture these passions. We are building a crossover of professional and amateur experiences to provide enhanced job skills and future opportunities in the creative industries.

Through Amplify we have been running a series of workshops, masterclasses and hands-on experiences as well as offering young people training opportunities. We are aiming to build on these past successes this year and help more young people to find their path.

Amplify: Friday Lates

In January 2020 we launched a bespoke programme within Amplify called Amplify: Friday Lates. Amplify: Friday Lates works with at-risk young people aged 14 to 19 (21 with SEND), including NEETs and those at risk of exclusion.

Offering Friday late-night sessions, Amplify: Friday Lates takes an innovative blend of creative arts and music to offer a vehicle for self-expression while giving access to new skills, qualifications, work experience and future career opportunities in a safe environment, with the added opportunity to talk one-to-one with experienced youth workers, allowing young people to re-orientate their lives, perceptions and futures.

Amplify: Friday Lates is funded by the Mayor of London and its Theory of Change is Standard 1 certified by Project Oracle and the Centre for Youth Impact.
