Self-Made Sector: Working in the creative industries

Self-Made Sector: Working in the creative industries is the result of interviews and focus groups with young people and organisations from across London, the report highlights the various challenges faced by young people in entering the job market.

The report has the following recommendations for the industry and central and local government:

  • The creative industries need to stop using unpaid internships

  • The industry needs to overhaul entry-level career recruitment practices

  • There needs to be a new careers advice and guidance strategy

  • Young creatives who don’t go to university need to be supported through grants

  • Government should add creative subjects to the EBacc

The Roundhouse and Partnership for Young London are calling on the industry to change recruitment practices and for central and local governments to create a new careers advice strategy and to reform the funding available to young people who choose not to go to university.
