A jobs renaissance in the arts sector has prompted TAFE NSW Kingswood to offer its first ever dedicated degree course – a Bachelor of Creative Practice.

To commence in semester one 2021, the Bachelor of Creative Practice is aimed at arming creatives with the real skills – and business nous – to forge a career in the arts.

According to a new report by the BYP Group titled NSW Creative Industries: An Economic Snapshot, NSW boasts 42 per cent of the nation’s creative jobs and produces 70 per cent of Australia’s creative industry exports.

It also found that over the past five years, employment growth in the NSW creative industries was almost double the average growth rate of other professions.

TAFE NSW Head Teacher of Visual Arts, Cath Barcan, said as automation continued to reshape the workforce, demand for creative skills was surging.

“The cultural sector is growing like crazy. All tiers of government now make it part of their business to provide the community with cultural pursuits and more jobs are opening.

“There are so many creative businesses springing up and so many surprising career paths in the arts, from art education and administration to curating galleries or starting your own art business,” Ms Barcan said.

Ms Barcan said the landmark degree offered flexible face-to-face teaching in the renowned arts facility at TAFE NSW Kingswood. Each semester, students will undertake two hands-on subjects in the studio, and two other subjects spanning art history and theory, art entrepreneurship and innovation.

“This degree will ensure that artists have the practical skills and experience that they need to pursue a career in visual arts or open their own business.
