Its been a busy and exciting couple of months here at MasterPeace Academy and we wanted to update you on our progress and share some of our milestone moments.
Following on from our successful City and Guilds program (March – July 2021), we welcomed seven bright and enthusiastic young people to join us for our first Kick start scheme in October 2021 -April 2022..
The Kick-Start scheme is a HM Government initiative where young people aged 18 -25 receive national minimum wage whilst training and receiving work experience.
I am delighted to say that they have all done amazingly well, and made us very proud, some have already been snapped up by local employers!
A hearty Congratulations to all our ‘A1 team kick-start trainees’ for completing the program, we wish them all an enjoyable and successful career in the jewellery trade!
One of the most memorable milestone moments for the trainees during their six months with us, was being featured on BBC Songs of Praise…
Training and work took place as normal whilst the BBC camera crew filmed us for a whole day. They were so friendly and professional that we were all immediately at ease and hardly noticed they were there. It was a huge privilege to share our work with the world!
The episode about creativity in Birmingham was aired on Sunday March 20th 2022, on BBC TV’s Songs of Praise. If you missed it you can view our video by following this link :https://youtu.be/dfZvVk5zDtQ

We are so so grateful to all of our friends and supporters. With special thanks and appreciation to:
