YWA (Youth Workshop Activities) is a trading name of Nugent Education Ltd. YWA (Youth workshop Activities) will provide DBS checked and liability insured artists who deliver a wide range of creative, performing and urban arts workshops and courses!

YWA work with children, teenagers and young people (and adults) of all ages and abilities, including children and adults with learning disabilities. To make things easier, these youth arts activities are delivered at your venue. Artists arrive 20 minutes early to provide workshops at your centre or venue across England and Wales. These indoor youth activities are available morning, afternoon and night, seven days a week and throughout the year including bank holidays.

These activities are booked by numerous organisations including NCS (National Citizenship Service. They require arts related team building and community activities. NCS organisations also require workshops that promote British Values such as inclusion. They find that our workshops provide a valuable tool to learn and incorporate the aforementioned skills and values, but in a fun and engaging way.

Take a look at some recent NCS feedback from our African drumming workshops for team-building and rapping and beat-boxing utilised to promote NCS values.


Example of recent NCS feedback

“Can you please pass our thanks on to Dominic and Todd? The children really loved the graffiti art and the street dance routine was very impressive. Also, thank you to Dominic for arriving early to bring the materials – it was greatly appreciated!"

Feedback from a Birmingham NCS activities coordinator: February 2017


Look at some of our other recent feedback from a youth organisation and a school who booked our arts activities!


 “Yeah it seemed to go really well, the YP were really engaged throughout the session and seemed to enjoy all the different aspects of the workshop. Our organisation (Young Cumbria) hired Nugent Education to deliver 2 graffiti workshops for a group of young people aged 11-16yrs. The activities were well paced and the expertise of the staff really helped encourage and inspire our group, the group really enjoyed every second of the workshops.”


Feedback from a Cumbria Youth Worker: July 2016


"Had Kyle come to deliver a beat-box/rap workshop with our disabled service user 13-25 years old. They absolutely loved it and Kyle was very patient and allowed the young people to go off and do their own unique things which they loved. Would definitely recommend them!"

Feedback from a West Midlands Youth Worker: February 2017

As we have shown, YWA have a lengthy and proven track record of providing interesting and fun arts workshops to numerous organisations. Workshops can be from 1 hour to a full day and run consecutively over a period of weeks.

There remains a wide variety of workshops on offer including rapping beat-boxing, DJ skills, African drumming, graffiti art, music production, film making, break dance, free running and many more.
