Online training for Careers Professionals and Careers Sessions for Young People – Creative Industries
Creative Careers Week – 13-17th November
The creative industries are everywhere – they exist in the clothes we wear, the films we watch, the museums we visit, the buildings around us, the games on our phones, the ads we encounter and much more. Given this, it’s no surprise that the world-leading sector accounts for 2.3 million jobs, 200,000 more than there were in 2019 before the pandemic.
With a hybrid programme of activities, Discover Creative Careers informs and inspires young people and those that support their decision-making about careers in the creative industries, to ensure skills shortages and gaps are filled by a skilled workforce from all backgrounds.
We aim to bust common misconceptions about what a career in the creative industries looks like, showcase job roles that are often unknown to many and explain what skills and qualifications young people need to succeed in those careers when they leave school.
Discover Creative Careers’ online awareness training has been designed for professionals who inform young people about their career choices.
The free 60 minute training session will cover:
Being part of the Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub has been pivotal to the development of careers provision in our school. The Hub have shared good practice across their members resulting in a stronger focus on good quality provision. The annual event enabled the hub to share their vision of School Improvement Through The Lens of Careers and looking beyond the Benchmarks. It was a fantastic opportunity to share different models of school improvement and strategies to further develop careers provision to enhance the future opportunities of our young people.Mrs A Spencer, John Taylor High School
It it superb to be able to speak with local schools, colleges, and businesses in Stoke and Staffs and show how important the partnerships are to bring the skills of the future. Educating those who educate the ones shaping the aspirations of young people is essential for the industry to grow and be more sustainable.”Alison Tucker, St Modwen
