Arts: Apprentices

Volume 494: debated on Wednesday 17 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many apprenticeships in the creative industries have been taken up since his Department’s publication of its Creative Britain document. (279531)

[holding answer 12 June 2009]: Since the publication of Creative Britain, 400 apprenticeships have started on frameworks associated with the creative industries. These include the Creative Apprenticeships and the Quality Assurance Games Testing.

This figure does not include apprentices working in the creative industries on non-creative apprenticeships. The National Apprenticeship Service will be able to calculate this information from September.
