Apprenticeships in the North to be given a welcome boost

Creative North, the campaign which aims to boost apprenticeships in the North of England, has been appointed with a new business development manager, Ellie Tucker.

Tucker will engage with businesses, organisations, schools, colleges, training providers and young people to help create apprenticeship opportunities.

Tucker said: “This represents a great opportunity for me to engage with the very best creative and digital media companies, and of course the creative people that have worked so hard to make it such a successful sector for the region. Creative North’s research has shown local young people hold the view that London is the place to be to build a career in the industry. We’re aiming to challenge that perception by shouting about all the great places to work, such as here at the Northern Design Centre in Gateshead, and the successes of our companies right across the whole region.”
