Careers in the Creative Industries (Free Webinar)

Wednesday 27th May - 4pm

The Creative Careers Programme Cymru/ Rhaglen Gyrfaoedd Creadigol Cymru (CCP Cymru) is a new programme to support young people and new entrants to the sector across Wales to discover careers in the creative industries.  Funded by Welsh Government as part of Creative Wales, the CCP Cymru presents an opportunity to work with more young people from diverse backgrounds, and by supporting the creative industries to offer meaningful work-related insights.

This session for careers advisers has been created to share information about the creative industries, incorporating information about how the project will support careers advisers and young people. We will discuss the creative and cultural industries and the vital role they play in our lives as well as the scale and impact of the sector and the pathways into them.

The webinar will be delivered by Sarah Mair Hughes, Head of Partnerships, Wales and Nations Lead for Creative and Cultural Skills
