Work Experience

Kickstart Your Creative Career

  • Are you aged 15 – 24?
  • Do you live, work, study, hang out in Waverley, Woollahra or Randwick areas?
  • Are you interested in kick starting your creative career, but don't know where to start?

Waverley Council is trialing an innovative new youth program that aims to help young people understand opportunities for careers in creative and cultural industries, and assist transition to employment.

The Innovating Work Experience Project (IWEP) will pilot a program that expands the concept of work experience through project based learning opportunities within Council and the community.

Phase 1: A creative and cultural careers forum to inspire, enlighten and demonstrate creative career pathways. For details and to register, see below.

Phase 2: A project based learning intensive (Innovation Lab) to occur in August/September 2019. The Lab will provide access to practical, ‘real world’ experience to grow your creativity, network and knowledge, and gain tangible skills and experience that assist transition to employment. Watch this space for updates!
