Youth Employment Programme - Traineeships

Young Scot Modern Apprentices 2013

About the Programme

Since 2011, Creative Scotland supported the Scottish Government's Youth Employment agenda by specifically helping young people into employment through four strands of work: Graduate Internships, Traineeships, Modern Apprenticeships and Creative Business Start-up. You can read more about this work on our website here.

In 2014-15, Creative Scotland supported arts organisations to employ a 1-year, full-time traineeship. The Traineeship was aimed at 20-30 year olds who were finding barriers to developing a career in the arts though lack of opportunity. Organisations could apply for up to £10k towards the costs of employing a Traineeship, and we anticipate that we would support up to 10 traineeships.

The programme is now closed.
