Welcome back all! We hope you had a fantastic Christmas and new year and are all ready for the gruel to begin again.
The Careers Service are hosting some rather cool workshops which all focus on creative jobs for anybody wishing to break in to film, radio, journalism, or any other career in media. We know that for stage 2 students this may be a bit of a tight week, with the Triple E challenge in the middle of all this, but it would be nice to see some SELLL students there.
Employment within the UK Creative Industries sector has increased five times faster than the national average, according to figures published in 2014 by the Department for Culture Media and Sport.
Creative Industries now account for 1 in 18 (5.6%) of all jobs in the UK. Between 2011 and 2013, within the creative industries, there were increases in jobs of greater than 20% in the East of England (27.1%), the East Midlands (25.0%), the West Midlands (20.6%) and the Yorkshire and Humber (20.1%).
1 in every 10 jobs held by graduates in the UK was in the creative industries.
