BRIT Awards Apprentice Scheme launched
The BPI has launched a new scheme which will award 10 apprenticeships in the music industry.
The scheme, which will be funded by money raised by the BRIT Awards, will give 10 applicants an opportunity to work as an apprentice in various parts of the music industry, with labels like PIAS and Kudos Records among those who will provide placements.
The BRITs Apprentice Scheme will start in January 2018 and last 14 months up to the end of February 2019, with the successful applicants also working at the BRIT Awards themselves as part of the experience.
The scheme will be open to anyone aged 18 and over. As part of the project, successful applicants will also receive specialist training in either business administration or digital marketing.
