Helping to inform and inspire young people

Careers Workshop & Pop up design

Latest

Free studio space at Husk confirmed - THANK YOU!

Project Description

To host, within Tower Hamlets College Creative Arts studios, a series of “Pop Up” bespoke design and printing workshops run by a Local Printing company. This will run alongside a day of career workshops for students to meet and interview professional designers, from a range of specialist areas within the creative industries.     

During these events students will work on a series of projects:

  • To design the logo for the departments learning company.
  • To present logo designs to invited guest designers for feedback.
  • To work alongside these designers to design and produce the department’s career leaflet logo “You Can Be”.
  • To conduct 1-2-1 interviews with visiting designers about their job roles, which will then be used to form the content of the “You Can Be” career leaflets. These will be aimed to an audience of young people and their parents, to inform them of the career opportunities within creative industries.

Final designs will be put into production and used for career events, college open days and to promote our highly successful apprenticeship program and our 16-18 year old student success stories.

The aims will be:

  • For students to gain experience working alongside professional designers, on joint live projects.
  • To develop learner’s awareness of skills required, within the digital printing and publishing industry, by working with a local printing company.
  • To develop awareness of career opportunities within the creative Industries by undertaking 1-2-1 interviews and in addition to working alongside designers, on these live projects.
  • To produce a range of up-to date career leaflets, aimed at informing our audience of the various careers opportunities available within creative industries and the vocational study routes are, which lead to these careers.
