Discover Creative Careers

The job profiles include relevant qualifications and apprenticeships for young people to research further when exploring further and higher education options.

For teachers, there is a range of lesson resources and industry-led filmed content featuring people who work in the sector to help them to introduce young people to creative careers. There is a week-long programme of resources so schools can host their own Discover Creative Careers week, launched to coincide with National Careers Week 2021. There are activities that will connect curriculum to careers and involve employer engagement.

For employers, there is information on the various ways in which they can support raising awareness of creative careers in schools and connect to tomorrow’s workforce.
