“I wish I’d had that when I was at school."

When we describe what it is that we do at This is Creative Enterprise, the response we always get is, “I wish I’d had that when I was at school.” So, what do we do? We work with businesses, schools, colleges and universities to give young people a taste of the opportunities that exist within the commercial creative, design and digital industries.

So, this is us – This is Creative Enterprise – providing students from four to 24 with creative innovation through business enterprise.

And we love what we do.

TICE brings a unique and invaluable perspective to student learning outside the classroom. With us, young people can explore the worlds of:

Fashion | Textiles | Music | Photography | Software Development| Graphic design | Illustration | Creative enterprise | Creative writing | Film | Digital Media | Animation| and more

We introduce students to current industry trends, perspectives and emerging opportunities by giving the young people we work with the chance to explore in full the scope of the careers that exist within the commercial creative industries. We work to give each student real-time, hands-on access to what’s happening in the world today – so they can think about where they might see themselves in the future.

From our one-day workshops in primary schools to our longer-term projects with secondary school students, the experiences we offer and the businesses we work with change each year. This reflects the speed of innovation that takes place, month by month, across the creative and digital sectors.

Both our programmes and workshops reflect the developing needs of industry and, in terms of sector awareness and employable skills, we keep abreast of changing trends. Each of our creative areas taps into trend-driven and innovative provision to support and develop the career decisions of the young people we work with.
