TICE is very important to students because they suddenly get a chance to see what it’s like to live and work in the creative sector and they get to do things that don’t really have the opportunity to do in school – they get to lead, they have to work together.

How to access TICE Careers & Enterprise
TICE Careers & Enterprise is available through our various workshops in both primary and secondary. Full and half day workshops for primary schools, Taster workshops for secondary both covering a wide and broad insight into the creative, design and digital sectors with a focus on entrepreneurship and freelance careers.
Any opportunity to engage with employers and to participate in projects and activities that involve employees from companies to really showcase what the industry is like, is an added benefit to any young person. TICE is an organisation that collaborates with a wide range of people from across the digital and creative industries, so that by participating, young people really do get to see a wide range of employer opportunities and to engage with a lot of employers from those industries. I think the young people are in a very fortunate position because they’re getting to peel back the skin of that industry and see what’s underneath.
