raising awareness of the career opportunities in the creative industries
Involvement in Start has raised children and young people’s awareness of the careers available to them in the creative industries. It has increased their appreciation of how the arts and design skills they are currently learning (at school or elsewhere) can offer them routes into creative careers in future.

This research consisted of five case studies of partnership working between arts organisations and primary or secondary schools involved in the Start programme. The five organisations were identified by Children & the Arts and selected for inclusion in the research based on the development of their strong relationships with schools over a period of three or more years. NFER liaised with each of the five arts partners to identify partner schools and arrange fieldwork. Each of the case studies involved a visit to one school, consultations with arts partners (telephone interview), lead teachers for Start, the head teacher or senior leader and children and young people involved in the programme (face-to-face interviews). Overall, the case studies involved five arts/cultural organisations, one infant school, three primary schools and one secondary school.
