06/02/2020: Oliver Morris, UK Music’s Director of Education and Skills, introduces three new apprenticeship opportunities for young people looking for employment in the music sector.
The UK celebrates apprenticeships this week – and their continued importance in the employment landscape. Although a relatively new phenomenon in the creative industries, they have been embraced as an important way to encourage more young people from diverse backgrounds to consider a career in industries such as our own – music. Many companies across the music industry employ apprentices and we hope to see this trend continue.
Live Nation UK is a great example of a business who is committed to ensuring that they attract the top talent, as well as developing the talent they already have, by using apprenticeships. They employ over 30 apprentices in roles across the company – including within their festival business where apprentices are picked from the borough where the festival is held.
UK Music have been able to secure support from Creative & Cultural Skills and ScreenSkills to help us through the process of developing three all-new apprenticeships in music.
