Thanks to those amazing folk at NCF, The Notivate Trust has been able to offer young people across Northamptonshire the chance to write, record and produce their own music videos (see below). We will be continuing to work closely with NAYC (Northamptonshire Association Of Youth Clubs) over the few months, so watch this space for more videos!

Latest News: Music Leader Training
In recent years, we have had an increase in the numbers of schools and youth clubs interested in offering the Notivate Singer/Songwriter Programme and Music Video Production Programme to their young people. So we are looking for some Post-16 students who would be interested in learning about our programmes and potentially join our music leader accreditation scheme.

Candidates are invited to spend 2 weekends at Whitemoor Lakes residential centre to find out about the Notivate Programme, attend an evening at Kings Park, Northampton, to learn about child protection and then shadow an existing Notivate group in a school or youth club. The residential weekends are currently booked for 12th – 14th December 2014 and 20th – 22nd March. Numbers are limited (we are looking for around 20 post-16 students) and the charge would be approximately £150 per participant.

More information will be available soon, but if you or anyone you know is interested in this activity, please contact us.
