Launching this year, the Discover! Creative Careers is a week-long event which will see hundreds of employers from across the creative industries opening their doors to young people to inspire and inform the next generation of workers.
The Discover! Creative Careers week is an opportunity for organisations to demonstrate the variety of roles and pathways available and ensure the future demands of our vibrant sector are met by a strong and diverse workforce.
Creative Careers are asking employers to join the Discover! Creative Careers week by acting as Industry Hosts and welcoming local school students aged 11+ into their organisation for just one day within the week of 18th – 22nd November 2019. Creative Careers will then provide support through every stage of the process with resource packs, templates and one to one guidance, whilst encouraging all participating organisations to showcase their specialist sector knowledge, and the work of all departments in a way which suits them best. Proposed options include running a rolling tours programme, a series of talks and demonstrations, or an interactive masterclass – the choice is yours.
