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.
In the thirteen years since its inception, more than 90 apprentices have completed the programme. Some of which have gone on to apply their skills and knowledge in different roles across the business such as; Product Development, Planning and Implementation. One of our Leather Goods Manufacturing apprentices from 2013, Harrison Malik is now Mulberry’s Development Technician and has represented the Company at special events internationally.

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.
