Evoke HQ open to students as part of Discover Creative Careers week.
Discover! Creative Careers is a week-long event which has seen hundreds of employers from across the creative industries opening their doors to young people, hoping to inspire and inform the next generation and demonstrate the variety of roles and pathways available.
We’ve welcomed a group from local Bebington High Sports College to evoke HQ today, introducing students to careers in hardware design, engineering, software development, manufacturing and more with talks and activities. We were also excited to take the group on a tour of our purpose designed HQ and give them a taste of working life in a vibrant, face paced environment.
“We’re excited to be supporting Creative Careers Week this year as we know that young people often aren’t aware of the wide range of creative careers available to them. We want young people from all backgrounds to be able to follow their passions into careers in design and tech and getting hands on in real working environments is the best way to do that.” – Dean Ward, CO Founder and CTO, Evoke Creative
Discover! Creative Careers is part of the Creative Careers Programme (CCP), an industry-led programme of activity across England working to increase and diversify talent and promote a wide range of routes into the creative industries.
With the ambition to reach more than 160,000 students through face-to-face encounters and two million young people accessing online, the programme addresses urgent challenges and risks around skills shortages within the creative economy.
Supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), the ‘open doors’ part of the CCP is vital as evidence shows that young people who are exposed to real workplaces and their associated job roles and functions are more confident and informed about making future career choices.
