The BRITs Apprentice Scheme.

Ten talented young people will get the chance to kick-start their careers in the music industry thanks to a new apprenticeship scheme created by the BPI and funded by money raised by the BRIT Awards.

The BRITs Apprentice Scheme is open to 18 years and over, and will give ten young people from England and Wales a unique, high quality, paid opportunity to work at a top independent record label or music company, learn about the recorded music industry, receive practical ‘hands on’ experience, develop relevant skills and make key contacts.

Apprenticeships are an important way to help bring in new and diverse talent into the industry and are in line with the Government’s commitment to education, skills and training.

Candidates can apply for more than one apprenticeship.  However, you must submit a separate application for each role.
