Creative industries are opening their doors to the next generation

25 Sep 2019


Discover! Creative Careers is a week-long event launching this November which will see hundreds of employers from across the creative industries opening their doors to students aged 11 and over.

Throughout the week, participating schools will have the opportunity to engage with at least one Discover! day in a local workplace, where they will take part in interactive experiences across various departments, giving students meaningful encounters with both employers and employees and providing information and insight into some of the lesser-known jobs that exist across the creative industries.

Discover! Creative Careers responds to evidence cited in the Government’s Careers Strategy which revealed that a young person who has four or more encounters with an employer is 86% less likely to be unemployed or not in education or training and can earn up to 18% more during their career.

The creative industries cover a wide and extremely varied number of jobs and sectors, including:

  • Advertising & marketing
    • Architecture
    • Crafts
    • Design: Product, Graphic and Fashion Design
    • Film, TV, video, radio & photography
    • Games and Visual Effects
    • Publishing
    • Museums, Galleries & Libraries
    • Music, performing and visual arts

In the Liverpool City Region, 22,000 people are already employed in the digital and creative sector. As an industry worth £1.8bn to the region, investment in the next generation of digital talent is key to building on our region’s strong position.
