For many young people there are few clear and visible pathways into the arts as a professional career route and this is why we’re thrilled to be part of the Discover! Creative Careers week.

Discover! Creative Careers Week is a time in which creative organisations open their door to thousands of young people. 

The England-wide event aims to inform and inspire local students aged 11+ about the types of roles and career pathways available across the creative industries so we can ensure the future demands of our world-leading sector are met by a strong and diverse workforce. Companies offer a range of practical experiences, from workshops, demonstrations, interactive tours, panel discussions and ‘The Apprentice’ style challenges.

The first Discover! Creative Careers Week was in November 2019.  Companies that opened their doors included the National Trust, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Pinewood Studios, Northern Ballet & Phoenix Dance Theatre, Channel 4, Norwich Theatre Royal, Birmingham Museums Trust, Cockpit Arts, the Financial Times, Kudos TV, The National Archives, xsite Architecture, Royal Exchange Theatre Manchester, The Historic Dockyard Chatham, Colston Hall, Burberry and Hachette Publishing, plus many more.
