Careers & work experience

You can refine Culturepool offers using the ‘Future Work: careers/employability skills’ filter under ‘Outcomes for young people’.

There are many other sources of information that can be helpful when providing young people with information, advice and guidance about careers in the arts and cultural sector:

Locally, the Liverpool City Region Growth Company has created a page on their Growth Platform website which signposts to a suite of Careers Resources – including general, sector-specific and curriculum support.

Creative and Cultural Skills (CC Skills) is an independent charity and licensed Sector Skills Council. It supports economic growth in the creative and cultural sector by encouraging young people with the right talent and skills to access it, regardless of background or previous educational achievement. They champion non-traditional progression routes into and through the workforce, including apprenticeships.

The CC Skills Discover Creative Careers website collates careers information and opportunities from creative organisations in one directory. It has a page for teachers and career leaders in schools, as well as for parents, and signposts to further careers information, advice and guidance.

Mandela8 is marking Mandela Day this year by encouraging schools and the public to take part in a whole week of activities. These aim to promote community cohesion and highlight those who have been affected by the ongoing pandemic. Amongst the suggested activities for the public to get involved in are calls for community choirs to entertain residents in lockdown (whilst engaging in social distancing) as well as litter picking and planting trees - we're looking for any acts of kindness. Participants are encouraged to spend 67 minutes of their day taking part in their chosen act of kindness - one minute for every year of Mandela's public service - as part of this #My67Minutes campaign, sponsored by Torus Foundation. Mandela Week - 13th to 21st July, 2020

With research suggesting that Covid-19 transmits significantly less in open spaces than indoors, many schools are seeing the power of Outdoor Learning – as its approaches allow children to work in “bubbles”. Our Outdoor Learning programmes have long been both popular and successful – and are ideally suited to the current situation, providing children with fantastic opportunities to place curriculum areas in context, to enjoy all the myriad benefits of being outside and to engage in social (but safe) behaviour. All of them exist in age-differentiated formats from EYFS to Year 6  - and allow us to work with a number of groups in a single day. Outdoor Maths Outdoor spaces provide wonderful opportunities to explore how numbers and shapes create both the built and natural worlds. So our engaging (and very active!) outdoor maths workshops, utilising our specially designed portable Outdoor Maths Trail, feature a range of tried and tested al fresco activities, bringing home the relevance of numeracy to our everyday lives – and providing lots of scope for problem solving too! Outdoor Literacy From The Gruffalo to Alice in Wonderland, many of the “greats’ of children’s literature, of course, are set wholly or partly outdoors – inspiring our exciting and engaging Outdoor Literacy workshop - CSI: Bookmark … The Book Review Competition at Little Podmore Library received record entries this year – but someone snuck in before judging was complete, and jumbled up all the entries! In a series of age-differentiated workshops, your children will work in “bubbles” on a carousel supporting them in realising just how much they know about literature. And, as they explore to the full their creative connection-making skills, we’re sure they’ll be able to make sense of it all! Purchase Your Own Outdoor Maths Trail Our Outdoor Maths Trail comprises ten durable, waterproof bags, each containing age-differentiated Outdoor Maths questions, challenges and activities - together with all required resources (plus a Teacher's Guide) - all contained in one easy-to-carry box. Available in formats for both primary and secondary schools, the Trail focuses on a whole range of mathematical areas including additive reasoning, multiplicative reasoning number patterns, fractions, percentages, properties of 2D shapes, properties of 3D shapes, money, positional language, multi-stage problem solving and logic problems.

As schools begin the process of re-opening their doors to pupils, initially from selected year groups, we know teachers are looking once again for the high quality and engaging creative learning programmes that As Creatives can offer – but in the knowledge that safety is paramount. Therefore for the new school term we are making available digital versions of some of our most popular maths programmes, allowing you to run these in school yourselves, without running any of the risks associated with hosting external visitors. Programmes include: The Benefactor, The Race into Space and The Riddle of the Sphinx - all delivered by our sister company As Creatives Connect. We’ll also be making many more programmes available digitally in the coming months – so from the autumn term onwards you can also buy A Taste of the Times, CSI: Michaela Maths and CSI: Goldilocks! Our digital programmes can be enjoyed by anything from a single class to a whole school, so represent fantastic value for money. As the current situation, though, places limits on the number of pupils in schools at the moment, we’re able to provide them at the Introductory Offer of £145.00 per programme. And although this offer will end on August 31st 2020, you can, of course, make purchases now to use in the autumn term (or beyond).

This arts-based research project centres around labyrinth activities. The labyrinth is an ancient archetype that has re-emerged in recent decades and is often used in educational as well as health and well-being settings. The aim is to explore how arts activities can be useful during epidemics. In particular, how can children and teenagers process, reflect and capture their experiences of lockdown by engaging with labyrinth activities? As the COVID-19 pandemic left us adjusting to a very different way of life - many of us home schooling for the first time - the arts sector is playing a huge part in devising imaginative ways to help reduce social isolation and manage the mental health and well-being of communities. If you are interested in taking part and want to find out more, please access all the resources and information here and contact Elaine McNeill if you have any questions: e.mcneill@ljmu.ac.uk 07782 482 733
