Get involved with the Creative Careers Programme

By being involved in the Creative Careers Programme you will join with the rest of the creative industries to bring about genuine change. Through our shared mission and a coordinated approach, we can make a far bigger impact together than would be possible alone.

It is vital that we work in partnership with those across industry who are already providing careers advice, materials, and initiatives for young people in order to identify where we can jointly publicise, connect and upscale initiatives and share learning and insight for the benefit of England's creative industries at large.

There are many ways to get involved:

Leading industry figures are encouraged to give their time by delivering inspiring assembly talks through Speakers for Schools

Speakers for Schools arrange for the UK’s top industry leaders to deliver inspirational talks in state secondary schools, giving students opportunities to hear more about our sector. To find out more email the Creative Careers Programme team at the Creative Industries Federation: ccp@creativeindustriesfederation.com

Provide work experience placements to young people who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity with the help of S4SNextGen

Speakers for Schools make it possible for busy, top sector firms and institutions to host state school students for work experience through S4SNext Gen.  To find out more email the Creative Careers Programme team at the Creative Industries Federation: ccp@creativeindustriesfederation.com

Offer industry insight and advice to a local school by becoming an Enterprise Adviser.

An Enterprise Adviser is a volunteer from business who works closely with the headteacher or Senior Leadership Team of a school or college to provide strategic support.  An Enterprise Adviser uses their business experience and professional networks to help develop and implement an effective careers strategy that puts opportunities with local employers at the heart of a young person’s education. To find out more email the Creative Careers Programme team at the Creative Industries Federation: ccp@creativeindustriesfederation.com

Promote your own opportunity on DiscoverCreative.Careers.
