Some are themed, some are not but this is a great way to dip your toe into reading as they will take anything from five minutes to an hour-ish. There are links to some of them to read or listen to online. (Not all are available this way but lots of them are.

Music The three links below will help you succeed in the ‘Planning a Career in the Music Industry’ unit we will be completing for your induction programme. In this unit there are two tasks:
  • Task 1 is all about you and is very inward looking. It requires no external research, but a lot of self-analysis and honesty.
  • Task 2 is all about careers in the music industry, so does require a lot of research about the UK’s music industry and the multitude of careers within it.
These three links will therefore help you immensely with Task 2!
