The Inverse Apprentice

About the project

A creative entrepreneurship programme provoked by the TV show The Apprentice. “The Inverse Apprentice”, in contrast to the TV programme, is led entirely by the participants — Tower Hamlets residents. The programme is delivered in partnership with local talent, business owners and entrepreneurs. It uses personal creativity, cooperation and diversity of thought as a framework to develop participants’ self worth and employability skills. The apprenticeship aims to raise aspirations of the participants by helping them to gain agency and practical tools to become local instigators of change responding to their community’s needs.

“The Inverse Apprentice” is a collaboration between The People Speak art collective, Spotlight youth hub and a posse of creative businesses in Aberfeldy Street, Poplar.
