  • Creative Work Experience at UCA Canterbury

    Date: 21st - 23rd June
    Time: 10am – 2pm daily
    Location: UCA Canterbury 
    Suitable for Years 10, 12 and FE equivalents

Our new Creative Work Experience programme is a great insight into working within the creative sector and will give young people the opportunity to engage with professionals in the creative industry.

Over three days, students will experience the University as a creative workplace, and learn about working in the creative sector as a freelance or self-employed professional. They will learn more about employability skills applicable to creative workplaces, such as lone-working, invoicing, motivation, collaboration and time management. They will be expected to make their own way to and from the daily sessions, dress appropriately and identify the right time to take breaks as you would in a creative workplace.

Support with travel is available for eligible students. For more information please see here and to register please click here.

Please note the deadline for your young people to apply for this opportunity is Friday 20th May
