Goldfinger
Academy

Our academy is open to all, and especially dedicated to training young people out of work and education, as well as vulnerable people in our community.

Academy mission

Skills development

We work to create solid professional careers as craftspeople through expert training and apprenticeships.

Craft as a career

We work with schools to put craftsmanship on the map early in a child's life, as a fulfilling and meaningful career choice.

Promoting wellbeing

Our courses focus on making for wellbeing: the art of creating with our hands has a proven positive impact on our mental wellbeing.

Trainees and apprenticeships

Companies sponsor apprentices who learn the craft from our experts. Primarily aimed at young local residents not in work or education, our programme teaches skills such as joinery, carpentry, cabinet making metalwork and paint effects.

On-the-job training done alongside an accreditation at the Building Crafts College and empowers trainees to become independent craftspeople.
