Industry Summary

Not everyone can be on TV. Luckily there are plenty more ways to enjoy success. Arts, Media or Publishing. It’s a sector that employs more than 2 million people. And with an apprenticeship there’s every chance you’ll be able to make a name for yourself.

Unleash your creative, technical or possibly even your administrative talents. There’s a range of skills required in Arts, Media and Publishing. If technology’s your thing, then studio engineering or studio recording might be for you. Or how about a future in digital design? And for those who thrive on pressure and tight deadlines, nothing beats journalism or event management. It’s fun and fulfilling. And London’s not the only place where the action is. Many large employers can be found in other big cities. There are a growing number of smaller creative businesses spread across the country that you’ll love too. Yes, making it will mean hard work and long hours. But we know that won’t stop you if you’re set on getting your big break in the industry.

With an Apprenticeship you could soon be making the headlines. Or even find yourself on the credits of the next Hollywood blockbuster. The industry recognises talent, so if you’re prepared to put in the work, the sky’s the limit.

Begin your search. Create your future.
