Sage Gateshead is the regional training provider for Creative Apprenticeships, an alternative route into the creative industries.
Since their launch in 2008 there have been over 100 Creative Apprentices in this region. Creative Apprenticeships are the first industry designed and approved government funded apprenticeship framework for the creative and cultural sector.
On-the-job learning is a significant component of the Creative Apprenticeship allowing young people to gain experience and employment.
Creative Apprentices can take up opportunities within cultural and heritage venue operations, live events and promotions, community arts and technical theatre (lighting, sound and stage).
We are delighted to announce that there will shortly be three new Creative Apprenticeship posts based at Sage Gateshead:
- 2 employed as a Creative Venue Technician within Technical Theatre (lighting, sound and stage)
- 1 employed as a Cultural Learning Participation Officer within Creative Learning (working in a variety of programmes of learning).
Currently there is a vacancy at Dance City for a Creative Venue Technician. The training is in conjunction with Sage Gateshead. The closing date is 11am on 25 July 2019.
