At Creative Alliance, we’re always looking to develop our offers and ways of working. We use our Projects for our Research & Development.
Multi-Employer Apprentices: Research & Development
We’re currently exploring, with employers, how to best run a multi-employer / flexi-apprenticeship programme whereby more than one employer can employ an apprentice. Great for introducing young people to the freelance world but not without its practical problems. This work is being supported by the Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership. A summary of the first phase of the research can be found here.
Foot in the Door Into …
Our careers education offer has been developed through our ‘Foot in the Door Into ….’ Projects. These have been supported by both Arts Council England and Screenskills. You read an evaluation of this programme conducted by Birmingham City University here.
With six partners from across Europe and financial support from the Erasmus programme, we contributed to the development of an on-line resource for educators to help them understand work based learning and how best to prepare students for it. A report on our final sharing event, which explored how to increase diversity in the creative industries, can be found here.
