About the event

'The current cohort of 210 learners will generate gains to society over the coming 10 years of some £2.4 million.'
Creative and Cultural Skills impact report, October 2011

The Creative Apprenticeships: Benefitting small to medium size enterprises in arts and culture sectors free event is run by Arts Council England, the National Apprenticeship Service and National Skills Academy Creative and Cultural. It is set in the context of the government's commitment to create 100,000 apprenticeships in London alone this year. The event will look at how organisations can capture and nurture a new generation of talented individuals through apprenticeships, and how organisations can get involved.

Employers, providers, apprentices, National Apprenticeship Service and the National Skills Academy Creative and Cultural will be present on the day to show you how engaging in an apprenticeship programme can transform your organisation for the better.

Refreshments and networking opportunities will be available throughout the day.

Who is it for?

This free event is particularly for managing directors, heads of HR and development managers of small to medium size enterprises working in the arts and culture sectors.
