Modern Apprenticeships in Creative & Digital Media

The industries in Scotland have developed the Modern Apprenticeship in Creative and Digital Media in collaboration with Creative Skillset.

There are a wide range of careers available in creative and digital media, which spans across TV, film, radio, digital, animation, computer games, photo imaging, publishing and advertising.

What are the entry requirements?

Whilst there are no qualification requirements, applicants must have an interest in and appreciation of the industry and a range of soft skills and attributes such as team work, communication and IT skills.

Apprentices will develop an understanding of the industry in which they are working as well as a recognised qualification. 

As a college or training provider, it will be your responsibility to provide the off-the-job learning. You will need to work with each apprentice and employer to tailor the training to the needs of both.
