The ambition of establishing up to 5,000 apprenticeships in the creative industries is designed to help remove the barriers to entry and diversify the work force. The BBC at mediacityiuk, Tate Liverpool, and Universal Music Group are among the first to sign up to offer high quality training.
The normal procedure is for people to find apprenticeships directly with an employer, or via a training provider, both of whom would carry out usual recruitment activities.
Potential apprentices can find out more information from the Learning and Skills Council or through the apprenticeship website at:
http://www.apprenticeships.org.uk where they can register to receive information on apprenticeships available in their area. The website also identifies other sources of information, such as Connexions and Jobcentre Plus.
