Schools and Colleges Day 

As part of the University of Derby’s Graduate Show, schools and colleges are invited to attend this informative and exciting symposium on the Arts.

Employment in the UK creative industries is growing at four times the rate of the UK workforce as whole and the number of jobs in the UK's creative industries rose by 5% in 2016, compared to the 1.2% increase in the wider UK workforce.

Almost 2m people are now employed in the UK's creative organisations and Government workforce projections suggest that creative occupations will grow by 5.3% over the next six years. That is double the projected job growth across the UK economy and an additional 119,495 creative jobs by 2024.*

Delegates will hear from successful University of Derby arts graduates and be given a tour of the fantastic showcase of final year student work.

Local Schools and Colleges can apply to the University to support transport costs. Please email
