Advanced Apprenticeship in Creative & Digital Media from Skillset

The creative media industries are rapidly evolving and converging . New entrants must have an understanding and appreciation of this convergence, alongside general knowledge and soft skills. Employers look for work-ready individuals who have good literacy and numeracy, strong IT skills and a good understanding of what it takes to work their way up in creative media – including the capacity to work hard, efficiently and in teams. Many roles require a combination of technical and creative abilities.

The aim for this new apprenticeship is to develop digitally savvy and work-ready employees who are multi-skilled and can work cross-platform. The apprenticeship framework has been developed by our industries, for our industries, and will present exciting career opportunities for new entrants. We are happy to provide any guidance and assistance to employers or providers who would like to take on an apprentice using this framework.

This document includes information related to the components of the apprenticeship framework. A Training Provider Handbook is currently under development which will supplement this overview document and provide details on further delivery and assessment details.
