Event description
A series of inspiring and insightful lightning talks with Cities of Learning stakeholders, followed by a networking event.

About this Event

Creative industries are the fastest growing sub-sector in the UK and are driving the economy. This is a tremendous opportunity for our young people, but opportunity gaps exist. While employers want candidates who can demonstrate creative and soft skills acquired outside of formal education, evidence shows that 86% of people entering the sector have a university degree, compared to a national average of 36%.

How can we help our young people acquire and showcase skills in a way that is appealing and valuable to employers, while ensuring that the best opportunities are available to all?

Join us at the RSA to hear voices from leading creative sector organisations, including the Tate, BFI, Roundhouse, Fashion Enter, LinkedIn and the Creative Industries Federation as we discuss this important topic.

This workshop will provide Cities of Learning competition entrants with a unique insight into the opportunities and challenges facing young people entering the creative industries and the employer perspective on recruiting talent.
