"Doing a gap year with Oxygen really helped me to learn about myself and discover what I wanted to do with my life. It gave me the chance to learn new skills, consider my future and understand what is important to me."
So why do a GAP year?
It has been a tough few months and many people have been asking themselves some significant questions. Now might be the time for you to invest in your future by investing your time to help others.
Many universities, employers and training providers see the value in young people taking a GAP year. It shows that they have had some time out of mainstream education and have experience of the world that they cant get whilst at school. I gives you insight in different perspectives on both the world and yourself and an opportunity to reflect on your hopes and aspirations for the future.
Oxygen has had many young people undertake our GAP year or internship scheme who have not only, discovered what they want to do with their life and developed their skills, but benefited others in so many ways.
We provide a range of valuable training opportunities, development and career planning, coaching and the chance to work as part of a team. We aim to have you complete a specific project and can tailor the GAP year to suit you. We are keen to help you apply your skills and develop new ones.
We are particularly interested in people who have knowledge of or aspirations to learn about:
Video, film and visual communication
Fashion and textiles
Up-cycling, salvage and ecology
Enterprise and business development
Developing projects to educate others on gender violence.
