We are pleased to offer creative industry taster sessions, in music technology and radio, for young people and adults who are interested in learning more about the creative industries and the skills and knowledge required to forge a career in this exciting and rewarding sector.
The UK’s creative industries contributed £101.5billion value to the economy in 2017, according to the Creative Industries Federation. This is more than a 50% increase since 2010 and means the sector makes up 5.5% of the economy as a whole.
Even more importantly, more than two million people work in creative industries and that number is growing – already up nearly a third since 2011. All these figures demonstrate that this is a vibrant sector with lots of opportunities for graduate careers.
It’s useful to note that, while the sector is in general good health, its growth over recent years has been driven by a boom in computer services, highlighting the importance of digital creative industries such as video games.
