Insight into the cultural sector- career advice- how to get started


Following on from the success of our annual Creative Choices Day, held here at the Guildhall, we are launching the Creative Careers Roadshow.

This is an opportunity for young people to gain an insight into careers in the creative industries; the broad range of opportunities available, routes into the sector and support available in the region.

This interactive presentation takes place in school time – lasting an hour + questions, on school premises; our experienced presenters will come to you, talking to students you feel will benefit the most. The event includes:

. What do you think a creative career is? An introduction to different creative careers. Through a series of short videos, discussions will be initiated around opportunities available in different cultural establishments.
. What options are available on the journey to securing a job? Presenters will talk about routes into the careers with a look towards Apprenticeships, FE & HE options and talk about work experience/ volunteering that students could be undertaking, signposting to further resources.
. Teachers will receive a pack, detailing material covered and enabling them to deliver a practical workshop which covers aspiration building and encouraging students to think about potential creative careers.

The roadshow is suitable for years 8-11 and can be for a class/classes/year group.

Bookable slots are available and will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis:

Monday 16th October @10am // 1:30pm
