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

Following on from the huge success of the roadshow over the last two years, we are back on tour for two weeks!

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 skills and attributes do you need for the jobs? Talking about transferable skills, what skills young people already have and what they perhaps need to develop.

– 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 school years 8-11 and can be for a single class or up to two classes.
