Bringing together a range of industry professionals from on and off the Island, this creative careers week, with 36 different events, from Architecture to VFX aims to educate, inspire and motivate young people to engage with creative careers at every stage of education.

The Creative industries are the UK’s fastest growing sector and account for one in 14 of all jobs across the UK economy, that’s over three million jobs! Yet schools are reporting that the creative sector appears underrepresented at careers events and misunderstood by young people and their families.

This pilot project hopes to shine a light on, not only what jobs exist within the creative industries, but what could be possible in pursuing a creative career, both off and on our Island.

All schools and educators can book now by emailing

The full programme of events is available on the IWCEP website
