JAMES Launches Apprenticeship Scheme

News Image
JAMES (Joint Audio Media Education Support), has recently launched their Studio Apprenticeship Programme at Metropolis Studios, in association with Creative & Cultural Skills and City & Guilds.
The apprenticeship scheme will provide apprentices with skills to prepare for jobs such as recording engineers, mix engineers, engineering, master engineering, studio management, creative writing and producing, and maintenance engineering.
Creative Ministries Minister Ed Vaizey attended the launch. He said the government is a "big fan" of apprenticeships and was happy to see the schemes are beginning to "embed themselves as a key part of our education culture".
Also present and speaking at the event were Catherine Large - Creative & Cultural Skills, Kerry McLennan-McKenzie - City & Guilds, Vic Grimes – Regional Director for National Apprenticeship Service and Paul Marijetic - Head of Apprenticeships for National Skills Academy.
Phil Harding, JAMES Chairman, said: "For a long time we have had inquiries at JAMES, MPG and APRS about alternative routes into the audio industry without taking the University route or other standard academic routes. For over 7 years now JAMES has been a supporter of linking Industry and Education via the traditionally offered routes through FE Colleges and Universities. We felt the time was right to set up this apprenticeship scheme with the support of government supported skills and qualification bodies."
The JAMES Apprenticeship Programme works in association with UK Music Skills Academy bringing together a network of bodies involved with approved music & audio FE & HE training throughout the UK.
