Creative Apprenticeships

As an employer in the creative industry, offering apprenticeships is a great way to train new staff and for your business to benefit from an employee with the latest sector skills and knowledge. 

With two programmes on offer – junior journalist and creative venue technician – apprenticeship training will enable your employees to develop the skills and knowledge needed to meet the demands of the business. 

Apprentices will combine working for the organisation with studying at college. In the workplace they will work alongside they’ll learn on-the-job by working alongside existing staff and in college will benefit from high quality teaching from tutors who have many years’ experience working in the industry themselves. 

They will train in the creative studios on the Paget Road campus which are equipped with a range of industry-standard kit including a TV studio and editing suites with HD cameras & industry software, radio broadcasting suite, digital recording studio, Mac suite for music composition and sequencing and photographic studio; and creative venue apprentices will also get to work on live events at the Slade Rooms in the city centre. 

What’s more, both you and the apprentice will be supported throughout the training by a college assessor who will visit the workplace to make sure your apprentice is meeting their targets and that you are both getting the most out of the training. 

The college has a dedicated recruitment team to support employers in appointing an apprentice – including advertising vacancies, screening applicants and shortlisting candidates for interview; and with a talent pool of enthusiastic young people waiting for a business apprenticeship you can be sure you’ll be employing the right person for the job!  

And, did you know that apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff? If you want to upskill and develop existing members of your team they can benefit from apprenticeship training too – email and a member of the team will contact you to discuss your requirements further.
