Creative and Cultural

Modern Apprenticeship


What's Creative and Cultural like?

Scotland is home to lots of cultural venues – with more than 400 museums and galleries. There is also a thriving, inventive performing arts and festival scene.

Do a creative and cultural apprenticeship and help show the country at its best. You could work in our museums, galleries or theatres. There are also chances to work at renowned events such as Celtic Connections and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

The creative sector is one of the world’s most diverse industries. With a creative and cultural apprenticeship, you can build a career in this exciting area.

For example, you may learn how to manage visitor attractions. This will see you take care of priceless objects and deliver visitor experiences. You could also build skills in facilitating cultural events, customer service and fundraising. There are opportunities to learn technical skills, such as operating theatre lighting and sound.

The best part is that you can transfer every skill you develop to other sectors and industries. If you’re passionate about art, you may choose to pursue a career in museums and galleries. If you love theatre, you can specialise in lighting, sound and digital technologies.
