Kim Byford, Project Director for Talent Accelerator at DLWP has been working with the East Sussex College Group to look at ways to support young people into the Creative Industries across the region.

The forefront of this has been a focus on how we support our live venues to find and train young people to fill their technical roles, which has been a struggle across the industry.  To respond to this, we are looking at ways to work together to deliver a Creative Venue Technician Apprenticeship using the expertise of the brilliant technical team here at the De La Warr Pavilion. This programme will grow technical staff members who will be fully trained for the venue they are working in and able to move our venues forward.

The next step is to find more venues across the county who would be interested in having an apprentice join their team. Are you a creative venue, does this apprentice programme sound of interest to you?  If so, and you’d like to have a chat about having an Creative Venue Technician Apprentice in your team then please contact Kim Byford
