Creative Traineeships launching Jan 2015

West Studios Logo

Centre for fledgling creative businesses, West Studios, is launching Creative Traineeships from its Sheffield Road base in January 2015.

What are Traineeships?

More info on Traineeships can be found here. Essentially a traineeship is a free 16 week course for 16-18 year olds to help get work ready and apply for work or Apprenticeships.


The Creative Traineeship explores the basics of setting up a creative business along with the experience of seeing how a creative business actually works with valuable days on work placements with real creative businesses including a silversmith, performance artists, magazine and jewellers.

In addition it will give you the opportunity to gain a Bronze Arts Award, which enables you to have a go and share your skills, look at the arts and to see what inspires you. You’ll also study Maths and English which are necessary for any job or qualification.

After successfully completing the traineeship there may be the opportunity to go onto an Apprenticeship or a full time course.
