PROGRAMME FOR THE DAY
10.30-11.15am: Panel Discussion
‘The Value of Volunteering’
With many arts organisations relying on the skill, talents and time of volunteers, it could be argued that there is not a lack of opportunities to gain experience within the creative and cultural sector. However, how are volunteers rewarded, and how do you move on from volunteering to paid work?
11.00-12.30: Teacher CPD
‘Teaching the Unknown’, Led by Paul Gorman
A session to problematize the notion of employability skills. If driverless cars will be on our streets in less than 5 years will there be a need to learn to drive? If we are moving towards a fully automated future what skills or knowledge will be of value in a jobless world?
