Year 9 students recently took part in an interactive careers workshop, introducing them to a wide range of jobs and roles using creative skills.
Throughout the morning students attended a Creative Café, organised by Culture Shift, where they met with a number of different businesses and were given the opportunity to take part in short practical challenges and workshops of their choice, exploring creative industries skills.
