Creative Careers Advocacy Toolkit

We are developing an advocacy toolkit ‘Making the Case for the Arts in Schools’ which can be used by creatives or teachers as an advocacy resource when speaking/presenting to senior leaders and parents/carers. The toolkit will be available in November 2020 and will be free of charge to educators working in Waltham Forest.


Creative Careers Presentation

Our creative careers presentation for use in the classroom was piloted during Waltham Forest Creative Careers Week 5-9 October 2020.

What schools say:

  • "well crafted and very engaging because students know the local context. There is a good mix of practical and informational input so that students are engaged – the resources and questions really make them think.”  Willowfield School

  • “very informative of how you can achieve your goals”  William Morris School


The presentation and associated resources can be downloaded here:


We have a team of creatives who can deliver creative careers presentations about their own career pathways to your students virtually or in person between now and the end of the autumn term.   To find out more information and book a session email:  wfculturelearn@walthamforest.gov.uk

Creative Pathways

Creative Pathways is a series of talks for young creatives 16-25 years to help develop their personal and professional profile. Curated by the William Morris Young Producers, the events provide an opportunity to hear from established creatives and entrepreneurs about their own unique journeys, gain advice on flourishing in the arts and network with others.

Previous events have explored event producing with Marshmallow Laser Feast and executive producer Niccy Halifax, who were vital in the production of our London Borough of Culture 2019 opening event, Welcome to the Forest. To watch the highlights, please click here.
