Apprenticeships at the BCC go beyond Lord Sugar’s Boardroom

Apprenticeships at the BCC go beyond Lord Sugar’s Boardroom

With the Government putting greater emphasis on higher level apprenticeships, it seems that the BCC has decided to extend it apprenticeship programme beyond the board room and provide opportunities that don’t involve working for Lord Sugar.

It has emerged that the BCC has applied for funding from the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) to increase the number of learners involved in their apprenticeship schemes in production management and media.

The apprenticeship programmes will be offered at a high level providing people with the opportunity to achieve degree level qualifications.  The proposed courses will run in conjunction with Creative Skillset over a five year period to NVQ level five (degree equivalent).  Production managers will also be able to increase their current NVQ Level 3 to Level 4.

The BCC should hear soon whether their high level apprenticeship funding has been approved, however Anne Morrison of the BCC Academy said that even if the programme doesn’t get funding she is still committed to running the course as an BCC-only initiative.
