Introducing Creative Traineeships for 16-19 years, TICE is supporting training provider Kaplan to deliver unique traineeships for young people interested in pursuing a career in Fashion Retail and Music Industry.

If you’re unfamiliar with Traineeships they are a government led initiative and more information can be found here: Traineeships – GOV.UK

“A traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience that unlocks the great potential of young people and prepares them for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready”
