Creative Internships

The Arts and Creative Industries Graduate Internships programme was created in partnership by Creative Scotland and the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO). This programme was designed to create and fund paid internships in third sector organisations and small businesses across the Scottish arts and creative industries. It ran between 2013-2015.

These internships gave vital paid work experience to unemployed graduates aged 18-30 in the arts or creative industries. All interns worked alongside arts or creative industry professionals who mentored and advised them on how to begin and develop a career within their chosen profession. Opportunities, for the most part, were full time, lasted for 13 weeks and were project-based, CV/Portfolio enhancing, and located within a supportive, creative environment.

The programme was funded by Creative Scotland, and managed by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations.
