This is a growth sector for the region and for the wider UK economy as a whole – employing around 1.5 million people across the UK. We recognise that inspiring people from our communities to consider careers in these industries will further play an important part in growing a skilled and diverse workforce for the future.
Job creation and work-based learning are at the very heart of what we do and, in our first year, we have engaged over 250 people in developing Calico Creative through a range of activities, including:
- Research and Development
- Script Writing
- Graphic Design
- Animation Production
- Music Composing and Arranging
- Field Recording
- Digital Archiving
- Dubbing Mixing
- Presenting and Voice Over
- TV Hair and Make Up
- Social Networking
- Games Design and Development
- Pitching to Commissioners
We have successfully facilitated work experience placements and internships for over 20 young people, and started to forge stronger links between community groups, education providers and industry professionals. We are also actively developing our own exciting digital products and services, so watch this space!
Our Person Club educational resources are used in primary schools across the UK. See an example here
