We need to raise the profile of Preston Vocational Centre (PVC) and the work it does in Preston with young people, their families and other strategic stakeholders in the city. We need to expand the profile and reach of the Centre, and use creative approaches to help people engage with the opportunities available in the building and construction sector - particularly in a growing city like Preston.


Firstly the project will create a high profile and visible brand of activity that will become identifiable in the City - A new festival for Preston that will become a core activity for the Centre. Secondly, we will use the festival as an opportunity to develop new, exciting creative content which can animate the vocational training opportunities available to the people of Preston, and young people especially, in a more direct and imaginative way
