Practical experience is valued by the creative industry

We work with employers in the creative industries to help them recruit and train new talent through apprenticeships. 

An apprenticeship is a great way to take your first step to a career in this vibrant and growing industry. Many roles in the creative industry require specialist, technical skills that simply cannot be learned in the classroom. 

There’s no substitute for experience, and apprenticeships from The National College provide just that - the perfect framework for candidates to develop the practical skills and knowledge to take advantage of opportunities within the industry.

Candidates can choose from more than a dozen apprenticeship pathways, providing them with the opportunity to work in the creative industry, whilst working towards valuable qualifications.

On completion of an apprenticeship, candidates will be job-ready, armed with specialist skills and the invaluable experience needed to build a successful career.

Browse through a full range of The National College apprenticeships.
