Coventry scheme looks to boost graduate jobs market
Tuesday, 05 August 2008
Creative Industries: arts and design
Those looking for graduate jobs in the creative industries in the Coventry area could benefit from a new scheme.
The Coventry University Institute for Creative Enterprise (Ice), is aimed at opening up opportunities in the sector, reports the Coventry Telegraph.
It is also hoped that the scheme will play a part in keeping recent graduates in the area by offering more jobs.
Speaking to the newspaper Christine Hamilton, director of Ice, said: "We are only waking up to the fact there's a whole industry here and I don't think it's something the West Midlands generally has done a lot to promote."
The scheme will look to develop new businesses and postgraduate courses, she added.
Last week, the Northern Echo reported that the information technology management for business degree at Northumbria University is preparing people for life in graduate jobs.
It reported comments by Paul Bink's, British Airway's information management manager, who believes the course meets "the needs of industry".
