PRS for Music Launches Apprenticeships Scheme
24 September 2013
PRS for Music has just announced details of its new apprenticeship programme which will run from November 2013-14. Two apprentices will be recruited – one in IT, and another in business development. The initiative is aimed at 16-24 year olds who are unemployed, and no previous degrees or qualifications are necessary. The successful candidates will complete the apprenticeship with a Level 3 NVQ.
Robert Ashcroft, chief executive of PRS for Music, commented: ‘As the largest employer within the music industry we are delighted to lead the way in offering a younger and vital generation an opportunity to acquire skills and knowledge that will sustain them throughout their careers.’ The apprenticeship scheme goes alongside current PRS programmes offering students work placements and paid internships in its member services department, as well as the sponsorship of five students at the Brighton Institute of Contemporary Music.
