This is Creative Enterprise (TICE) is a community interest company. We work with businesses, schools, colleges, and universities across the North East and with young people aged between 4 and 24.

TICE provides real-time, hands-on access and insight for young people into careers and opportunities across the commercial creative, design and digital industries.

Ebacc and Progress 8 performance measures are changing the focus of creative education within schools. TICE brings a unique and invaluable perspective to student learning outside the classroom. With TICE, young people can explore the worlds of:

Fashion | Textiles | Music | Photography | Computer science | Graphic design | Creative enterprise | Creative writing

And we love what we do.

So much so that in 2016 the TICE team won a national Design Skills award from Creative & Cultural Skills for demonstrating ‘viable opportunities to young people’ across our respective creative industries.

“Any opportunity to engage with employers and to participate in projects and activities that involve employees from companies to really showcase what the industry is like has an added benefit to any young person. TICE collaborates with a wide range of people from across the creative and digital industries.”

Karen Marshall – Apprentice, Education and Engagement Lead, Accenture

“TICE gives young people both the opportunity to think about the world and their place in it and the time for self-reflection. It’s a place where young people can gain in confidence and where they can begin to grasp the relationship between their personal responsibility and their career aspirations.”

Jenny Barrett, Founder, TICE
