TICE Taster Workshops
What are Taster Workshops?
Our Taster Workshops are an insight into a commercial creative, design or digital sector. Aimed at careers advice and guidance specifically for young people wanting to explore careers and opportunities in the creative industries. They are one school day, available to Year 7 to Year 14 and delivered by an industry mentor.
How it works...
From your point of contact with us, right through to the delivery of the TICE programme to pursuing individual workshops, we are on hand to offer you guidance and advice. Feel free to discuss your requirements with us, this could be meeting Career Guidance Benchmarks, to areas of creative industry you would like us to cover also what creative disciplines you would like to experience. We have a long list of workshops and programmes provided in other secondary schools for you to browse through.
Do you deliver in our area?
We are situated in the North East of England and travel regularly throughout Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, Durham to Teesside at no extra cost to your school. If you are situated outside of the North East, travel and accommodation costs may be incurred or please look at our TICE International project options.
Explore our Creative Areas
The rapid growth and the speed of technological change can make it difficult to keep up with the fast pace of the creative, design and digital sectors. Each TICE mentor works alongside industry leaders to gain an understanding of key developments and to recognise emerging skills shortages.
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.
How much does it cost?
For individual workshops start from as little as £395. Most resources are completely provided by us however we may ask if you have spare equipment such as extra pairs of scissors or coloured pens, pencils or glue, for example, depending on the student numbers involved. The workshop day is from 9am - 3pm.
What space do you require?
Depending on the number of students involved (between 20-30) and the creative discipline chosen we may need computers, music rooms or classrooms with sinks for example. Our team will be happy to work out the logistics with you.
