Roadshows in Bristol and Plymouth will provide more information about the Creative employment programme, a £15 million, National Lottery funded programme aimed at increasing work and training opportunities for unemployed young people.
It was officially launched by Matthew Hancock MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Business and Education, on behalf of Creative & Cultural Skills who will be delivering the programme nationally. .
Funding will be provided for 6,500 new traineeships, apprenticeships and paid internship opportunities to help young unemployed people aged 16 to 24 enter the arts and cultural workforce.
The free workshops are for arts and cultural sector employers working across music, dance, theatre, literature, visual arts, contemporary craft, combined arts, galleries, circus, carnival arts, museums and libraries. Creative & Cultural Skills are also keen to hear from other partners, such as local authorities, who wish to create opportunities and work closely with employers across these disciplines
Availability for each road show is on a first-come-first-served basis. Due to limited capacity we are encouraging just one representative from each organisation to attend. Please note that there will be more regional road shows later in the year.
