Our Creative Arts Apprenticeship programmes proudly boast significant links with industry and built upon the rich foundations of arts education, where innovation, experimentation and ideas flourish. We work together with a diverse range of businesses to understand your model in order to develop a training programme that combines niche hands-on skills and industry knowledge within a professional context.
Why take on an Art, Design & Media Apprentice with BTC?
Recently refurbished to the tune of £12.5 million, the Arts House is eye catching from inside and out. It houses fantastic facilities that give creatives in a range of fields including art, graphic design, textiles and media.
In order to keep up with the demands of a cutting edge Art and Design curriculum, we successfully bid to secure funding to help refurbish its iconic Art and Design building.
The £11 million refurbished building provides a home for all of the departments involved in the University Centre Somerset’s cutting-edge training and education in the creative industries, including digital broadcasting for television and radio, music production and a new studio theatre.

How else can we help?
Although your business may belong primarily to the Creative Arts industries, that’s unlikely to be its sole focus – you’ll probably have machinery that needs regular maintenance or repair and staff that need looking after, as well as an accounts department, a delivery function, marketing, general admin, customer service – the list is endless.
Increasing the productivity and efficiency of any of these areas could have a really positive impact on profitability, and an Apprenticeship programme is a really cost-effective way of doing that.
We offer a variety of different training solutions to support you with your business and our team will tailor your training requirements to your business needs.
